Fresh New Year - Fresh Color Palette
For over 20 years Pantone has selected a "Color of the Year" based on design trends, socioeconomic conditions and our global culture. This year, for the first time, a new color was created to reflect the challenging, changing times we are all going through. Drum roll, please...
How do you describe Very Peri? It's a dynamic blue with violet-red undertones. Pantone describes it as blending the faithfulness and constancy of blue with the energy and excitement of red.
While Pantone concentrates on an all-encompassing color trend, paint companies who determine "Colors of the Year" use the same criteria geared towards home interiors.

With that in mind, let's look at colors the major paint companies say will be everywhere next year.
