Pantone’s ‘Very Peri’ 17-3938

Top of the list for new colours is Pantone’s Very Peri – According to Pantone, this is a ‘dynamic periwinkle blue hue with vivifying violet red undertones’ we aren’t entirely sure what that all means, but it is a lovely colour! Take a look here.

House Beautiful suggest ‘Very Peri is great for providing an eye-catching pop of colour – either through a painted wall or accent furniture. Or, if you only want a touch of Very Peri in your home, pick out blue or lilac glassware accessories and group them together for impact, then add a few stems of lavender.




Periwinkle Blue

Along with Pantone’s top choice for 2022, all shades of Periwinkle Blue are expected to be trending for 2022, mainly used as an accent colour along side more muted colour palettes. Take a look at some examples here.


Dark Kitchens


Moody Hues

You might remember from last years Kitchen Trends, that dark colours were creeping into homes as the go to trend in kitchen design, now it seems that trend is carrying over to interior paint choices. The trend for 2022 is currently using ‘Moody Hues’ – dark sumptuous colours – to make the most of small spaces, take a look at some great examples here.

Warm Neutrals

Almost in complete contrast to the Moody Hues comes the use of warm neutrals for background walls. Adding a touch of bright, clean and crisp colours mixed with a touch of warmth to tone down the harsh effects and married with natural wood furniture can create a great look!


Muted Palette

Lime washes adding texture along with a plaster finish is all the rage this year according to the interior design professionals. Creating a muted pallet that blends European sophistication and organic natural effects. Take a look here for more design ideas!
