Use 2022’s Color of the Year in Your Mobile Home

The new year brings promises of resolutions, new beginnings, and revitalizing your living space to spark some creative inspiration or simply change things up. 

For manufactured homeowners, this means doing some winter cleaning before the spring cleaning, some new interior decorating, or a fresh coat of paint

If January is your month for any of these projects for your mobile home, then you need to know about this year’s Color of the Year, and how you can best use it in your mobile home. 

What is the Color of the Year? 

Every year, Pantone, the company behind the famous color matching innovation known as the Pantone Matching System, unveils its “Color of the Year” that represents the current culture and serves as a symbol for the times to come. 

This year’s color, “Very Peri,” marks the first time the first time a newly-created color has been selected as part of this recognition.  

“We are living in transformative times…Very Peri is a symbol of the global zeitgeist of the moment and the transition we are going through,” the official Color of the Year announcement reads.

With that in mind, there are a number of ways this blue-purple hue can bring some transformation and transition into your mobile home, whether you decorate with it on the inside or the outside.

How Can You Use It In Your Home? 

Painting

Very Peri can make for a strong blue or purple color if you’re painting indoors. 

At first glance, the vibrant shade can make an excellent color for a children’s bedroom, or a bathroom. The blue and purple invoke a sense of calm, serenity, yet playfulness, making it ideal for either environment. 

Alternatively, you can explore using Very Peri in your mobile home via an accent wall. An accent wall is one wall of any given room that is painted a different color from the rest of the room, though still thematically similar. For instance, an accent wall in a living room painted teal blue may be painted a darker blue, similar to the color of the ocean. 

In the case of Very Peri, you could use a darker purple as the accent wall, or have Very Peri be your accent color for a more bluish color as your main color. 

If you’re looking for Very Peri or a similar shade for your next paint project, you can achieve this by printing out a photo with the Very Peri shade and matching it to the closest swatch at your local hardware store. You can also use digital color finders from popular paint manufacturers, such as Sherwin-Williams, to match Very Peri to the exact shade that you’d like for your paint project.  

Interior decorating 

If you’re looking for more subtle ways to incorporate Very Peri into your mobile home, consider other methods of working the shade into your interior decorating. 

Think curtains, or perhaps even wallpaper trim, ways that make the color pop against your current living environment. Feel free to think outside the box with these, too. Need new cooking utensils or equipment? Finding what you need in a similar shade can bring a pop of liveliness into your kitchen where you wouldn’t normally expect to find it. 

Even something as small as glassware in a display cabinet can provide that vibrant splash of color you need for a dining room or kitchen.

Outdoor floral arrangement

In warmer regions of the country, this is something you can do right now. Planting flowers outside your home, whether it’s in a flowerpot on your porch or in a garden bed along the front or side of your home, can bring your home to life on the outside as well as the inside.  

Carpeting

Replacing carpet in your mobile home is no easy task. But, when it does need to be done, consider a blue or purple carpet similar to Very Peri. Similar to how it looks when painted on a wall, the color can inspire both calmness and creativity, depending on your mood, making it the perfect choice for a carpet that ties any room together. 

What are some other colors of 2022? 

Pantone is not the only organization that denotes a “Color of the Year.” 

Sherwin-Williams’ Color of the Year is Evergreen Fog, self-described as “soothing, subtle, and a perfect shade to freshen up any space.” They also offer additional colors to pair Evergreen Fog with, as well as some creative influences perfect for your mobile home living space.
