Pantone Color of the year – 2022

A few weeks back, I posted about the Pantone Colors of the year for 2021 and the response I got on Facebook was puzzling.

Many commenters seemed to think that, by naming a “color of the year”, they were EXPECTED to like and use that color.

I certainly don’t see it that way. I am always looking for color combinations that I like and my exploration of the Pantone Color was just out of interest to find another one!!

One reader….Laura McHugh…. sent a photo of the quilt that she made using the 2021 colors…..

I love that she took the colors and determined to make something from them. WELL DONE LAURA!!


So, today I want to introduce you to the Pantone Color of the Year for 2022…..

Periwinkle!!

Don’t you love how saying the name tickles your tongue?

As I searched further on the Pantone site, they had designed several different palettes that used the Veri Peri color….

Wellspring
Amusements
Balancing Act
Star Show

They are all so interesting and I am intrigued by this last one. Wouldn’t it be fun to start with blacks, greys, and tans and then add the POP of Periwinkle?? Maybe I will have to give it a try in 2022!!

I hope that you find the colors that you love in 2022 and create MANY projects using them!!
