The Pantone colour of 2022 and how to integrate it into your decor
At the beginning of each new year, all textile, design companies and fashion houses eagerly await the release of the Pantone colour of the year.
Indeed, this Pantone-identified colour will help guide the year's trends in several areas, including interior design, graphic design and fashion.
WHAT IS A PANTONE?
A Pantone is a colour identified with a name and a code, determined by the company bearing the same name, Pantone. Pantone charts have been used for decades in the decor and fashion industry and have become a standard for any company working in these sectors. The codes are important tools for the companies wanting to reproduce any of Pantone's colours. For example, if a company decides that it wants to have hoodies printed with its logo, it can tell the clothing manufacturer that it wants its logo in the colour Pantone 2728 C. The manufacturer can then make sure that the printed colour matches the Pantone chart.
In 2021, we were treated to this colour duo, 17-5104 Ultimate Grey and 13-0647 Illuminating. These colours foresaw the difficult year ahead. Grey for resilience and yellow for optimism.
For 2022, Pantone presents us with a bold colour that inspires creativity, Very Peri 17-3938. According to Pantone, "this colour represents the period of transition we are currently in." We are being encouraged to come out of isolation and create with a new perspective on the world. It's also a colour that stands out particularly well on our screens, as Pantone says "our basic notions are forever changed and our physical and digital worlds are more interconnected than ever."
