An unusual colour, therefore brave, ready to stimulate creativity to see the world with different eyes, as explained by Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute.

How to blend Very Peri with your home decor
This nuance, very similar to periwinkle blue, is certainly not among the easiest to insert into the rooms of your home, especially in contexts where the desire is to integrate an existing decor.
The ideal solution is to put it at the centre of the scene, combining it with neutral tones of white or black.
To get a more original effect, you’ll just have to choose whether to highlight its cold side or its warm side. In the first case it can be combined with a sage or terracotta and the result will be a romantic effect, a bit shabby chic. In the second case you can be bold using bright colours such as yellow and orange, obtaining an energetic and vital result.
One idea for not turning your entire decor upside down is to focus on light. If you have white walls and fixtures, you can use lamps with tones tending to purple to give the room a look perfectly in line with the colour of the year, without making other radical changes.
