Pantone have announced the Colour of the Year for 2022, and we are excited to see a new addition to their shade range, which is named ‘Very Peri’.

Whilst here at Morpheus & Co we had predicted the shade might be a green hue (following lengthy periods of indoor isolation), we were pleasantly surprised to see an uplifting shade of blue/purple, which is arguably also inspired by the natural world, reminiscent of vivid Spring bluebells.

Take a look at some of Morpheus & Co’s previous projects using purple hues in these images...

A carefree confidence and a daring curiosity that animates our creative spirit, inquisitive and intriguing PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri helps us to embrace this altered landscape of possibilities, opening us up to a new vision as we rewrite our lives. Rekindling gratitude for some of the qualities that blue represents complemented by a new perspective that resonates today, PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri places the future ahead in a new light.”

The Pantone Colour of the Year is a hugely popular resource of information for designers across the world. Whilst as interior designers, the first shade we reach for might not be a colour match to our favourite childhood sweets (Parma Violets!), we can look at Pantone’s Colour of the Year with a more abstract view, to feature it and the message it symbolises in our interior schemes over the coming year.

Trends, of course, are not for everyone, especially at home in the sanctuaries we create for ourselves.

If in doubt about using purple in the home, fear not… Purple is a stable balance between blue and red, and the colour can be associated with vitality and passion,  as well as having a calming effect on our mind and central nerves within the body. Seen as a thought-provoking colour, purple can inspire and represent imagination, perhaps due to its long history of spiritual connotations from gem stones (such as amethyst), which can be used to refresh the mind.

Perhaps for a more subtle touch of purple within the home, you could drape a throw over your armchair, or light a scented candle. Even use a purple trimming to finish off an accent cushion. Bold colour can be used to create a small touch of flair that confidently ties together a scheme and makes the finished interior sing.

“Digital design helps us to stretch the limits of reality, opening the door to a dynamic virtual world where we can explore and create new colour possibilities. With trends in gaming, the expanding popularity of the metaverse and rising artistic community in the digital space PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri illustrates the fusion of modern life and how colour trends in the digital world are being manifested in the physical world and vice versa.”

Interior design is very much a transcending industry at the forefront of technological advances with its ability to seamlessly integrate technology; whether you consider this from a construction perspective, or how technology is changing the way we shop in retail environments, even through to how we check in at hotels and hospitality venues.

As designers, we are constantly pushing boundaries and exploring new possibilities. The Colour of the Year for 2022 will resonate with like-minded dynamic creatives, who are consistently responding to the demands of modern society.

Morpheus & Co prides itself on producing ‘anything-but-ordinary interiors’, so we wholeheartedly support this energetic colour, that represents the transformative times we are living in. Our Design Team are thoroughly looking forward to a new year of ideas, inspired by the confidence of this new Pantone shade. Bring on 2022!
