At the end of every year, we’re inundated with a plethora of best-of lists and trend predictions for the upcoming year. One of the most anticipated of the latter is Pantone’s color of the year, and it’s been announced.
Every year, Pantone’s chosen color finds its way into nearly every lifestyle category. For 2022, the company chose Very Peri, a blue-tinged shade of periwinkle. It’s extra special, too, because it’s the first color Pantone created rather than dipping back into its archives.
If you’re looking to hop on the incoming color-trend bandwagon, we’ve rounded up some of the hottest lifestyle items you can get right now in the already in-demand color.
Bring some color into your kitchen with this cookware from GreenLife. The collection comes in a gorgeous periwinkle shade and features everything you need to color coordinate your cooking basics.
You’ll get a four-, seven-, and nine-and-a-half-inch frying pan, one- and two-quart saucepans with lids, a five-quart stockpot, a 2.5-quart sauté pan with a lid, a seven-inch stainless-steel steamer, and four color-coordinated kitchen utensils.

If you or anyone else in your home has allergies or asthma, or if you just want to keep the air fresh, an air purifier is the way to go. The Bissell MyAir proves that an appliance doesn’t have to be unsightly, thanks to its soft periwinkle hue.
The MyAir features an activated carbon and pre-filter that captures 99.7% of 0.3-micron particles or larger (so things like dust, pollen, and dander). With a three-in-one filtration technology, you’ll only need to replace a single filter at a time.
Plus, the purifier covers 88 square feet of space in a compact form you can discreetly sit next to a pet bed or desk. You’ll forget its even there thanks to its near-silent filtering.

They’re also wrinkle- and fade-resistant, machine-washable, and come in sizes from twin to California King. Plus, if you really love them, you’ve got a whopping 39 other color choices!

Journal lovers and writers should definitely invest in a periwinkle-toned notebook for the upcoming year. You could even make it a tradition to match your annual journal or planner to Pantone’s color of the year.
This option from Moleskin (the gold standard in notebooks) might skew slightly more on the blue side, but it’s still stunning. With its ribbon place holder, elastic closure, and thick, ivory paper, it’s perfect for recording anything from your daily thoughts to your to-do lists.

If you’ve been thinking of switching up your skin care routine, adding a cleansing brush is a great option. The Foreo Luna 3 is a popular skin care tool that also comes in periwinkle. Its silicone bristles won’t harbor bacteria as they remove dirt and oil-based impurities from the skin.
Its gentle circular motions also act as a mild exfoliator. Plus, it can double as a facial massage tool and is easy to clean.

We’ve featured Estelle Colored Glass before, so, of course, we had to bring back the bright-hued glasses after Pantone announced its color of the year. These handcrafted wine glasses come in a stunning pastel periwinkle that’s perfect for sipping your favorite wine in the evening or a delicious mocktail at lunch.
Give your beauty routine a Pantone pop with this lilac-themed palette from ColourPop. The nine-pan palette features a mix of pink and purple shades in matte and metallic shades.
Add a wash of purple over your lid for a subtle look, or go all out with a bold eggplant-hued smoky look. The best part of the palette, though, is its price tag.
Get official Pantone merch via its collaboration with Cariuma. The color experts teamed up with the shoe brand to craft three iterations of Very Peri sneakers. This option features a bright periwinkle canvas (of course), and a low-top design with a chunky sole and green detailing inside.
