Tips for Using Very Peri in a Residential Setting

If you're ready to paint your home with the trend-setting Very Peri, check out these painting tips:

1. Go Light on Walls

With its light yet moody vibe, periwinkle is a subtle color that can work well in all kinds of settings. Best for bedrooms and dining rooms, it makes these spaces feel more elegant and larger than they are. To make Pantone’s Very Peri pop, try incorporating it into a pattern or using it for an accent wall.

2. Accentuate Details

If you're wanting to incorporate this periwinkle hue into your interior, but don’t want the whole space to be painted in this color, try adding statement décor pieces or paint small sections to accentuate details. This will give each area a more visual impact, creating a beautiful, cohesive space.

3. Combine Colors

Using different shades and tones of color can really make your interior shine. Try combining Very Peri with any other similar hue on your walls to give the space more depth.
