Do you know the saying, ‘feeling blue?’ Well, this week we’re feeling a shade of blue – periwinkle to be exact. This week Pantone released its celebrated color of the year, and with it, made its own rules by creating its own color. Because, why not? As we prepare for 2022, we’re taking a look at this year’s color, including how it’s chosen and its significance.
Here are our picks of the week.
Since 2000, the Pantone Color Institute has annually announced a “Color of the Year.” As a new shade is unveiled, what can it tell us about the future?

The company just announced its selection is Very Peri, but others have also declared choices; Cream Moonstone, Guacamole, Cosmos.
According to the institute, creating a new color for 2022 was itself symbolic of the changes taking place in the world right now, following an intense period of isolation and uncertainty.

It happens every year, usually in the fall, sometimes in December. “The color of the year” is announced by a paint company. Or a design website, or a fashion magazine.
