8 ‘Very Peri’ Pieces You Need To Brighten Up Your Home

And your mood.

The verdict’s in: we’re moving on from decorating in 50 shades of beige to colours that fun, bright and bold.

We’ve already seen vibrant hues crop up on runways and in the fashion-scape, so why not add it to our home too? Bright colours can instantly brighten up both your home and your mood (important), and this year, we’re leaping at any chance we can get to give ourselves that extra spring on our step.


Ever since Pantone revealed its 2022 Colour Of the Year as ‘Very Peri’, we’ve been dying to add it to our home-decorating mood board. ‘Very Peri’ is a “dynamic periwinkle blue hue mix with a vivifying violet red undertone,” and we want it everywhere in our homes.

So, if you are yet to be convinced with introducing a bit of colour to your home, or you’re not sure where to start, read on for our list of the chicest ‘Very Peri’ inspired pieces for those who want to go bold, and for those who want to take it slow.
