Pantone Colour of the Year. Very Peri = Wattyl Turkish Bazaar

Pantone Colour of the Year 2022: Very Peri = Wattyl Turkish Bazaar

The Pantone Colour of the Year 2022 is VERY PERI.  To mark the occasion Wattyl has announced its perfect match for this colour – TURKISH BAZAAR.

This periwinkle shade of blue, with violet-red undertones, is a brand new Pantone colour that is dynamic, creative, intriguing yet possesses all the qualities of constancy and faithfulness the blues are renowned for.

Pantone says Very Peri is intended to encourage courageous creativity and imaginative expression and is a direct response to the period of transition and upheaval we have all been experiencing.  Hence the need to create a brand new colour for 2022, one that reflects the global innovation and transformation that is taking place.

The vibrant hues of Wattyl Turkish Bazaar are reminiscent of many of the colours found in nature, such as the periwinkle and lavender flowers as well as the plumage of birds such as the Satin Bower Bird.

Wattyl Turkish Bazaar is a colour consumers can really have fun with – be it painting a single feature wall in a bedroom or living area or introducing pops of the colour in the form of cushions, throws or ceramics.

Pantone has led the way in showing how versatile the colour is – and how well it works with so many other colours – with its rendition of a home office as well as an abstract of building blocks.

Get the look of this home office by painting two adjacent walls – one in Wattyl Turkish Bazaar and the other in Wattyl Irresistible – and then paint the filing cabinets (or other items of office furniture) in Wattyl Ann Marie.   The grey of the light shade and small boxes is a direct match with Wattyl Smokey Wisp

The vibrant look of the abstract below can be achieved with Wattyl Turkish Bazaar, Wattyl Wanda, Wattyl Myrtle Leaf, Wattyl Tuscan Poplar, Wattyl Alpine Nest and Wattyl White.  See end of release for colour swatches and names.

And of course, for those seeking a more pared back look choose a simple, crisp white (Wattyl White) or soft pearl grey (Wattyl Designer White) to go with a single feature wall painted in Wattyl Turkish Bazaar.

All of the above Wattyl colours are available in Wattyl I.D. Advanced Ultra Low VOC interior paint – in Contemporary Matt, Luxury Low Sheen, Silky Satin and Advanced Low Sheen.  RRP starts at $71.90 for four litres.

Available nationally at Wattyl Paint Centres, selected Mitre 10 stores,  Home Timber Hardware and Crowies Paints.
