There are only a few weeks left until 2022 arrives (crazy, I know), and if you’re anything like me, you’re anxiously awaiting the new year, resting way too much hope on a small date change. Turns out, the Pantone Institute is just like you and me. For the first time in the 23-year history of their always anticipated color of the year, Pantone created a brand new hue for 2022. The color, dubbed Very Peri, mixes traditional blues with hidden violets and reds. Pantone says the color encourages creativity and curiosity and “helps us to embrace this altered landscape of possibilities, opening us up to a new vision as we rewrite our lives.”

Considering Pantone’s color of the year in 2021 was a gray tone, I’m personally very excited to celebrate the hopefulness offered by this new radiant color. And what better way to channel this positive energy in the new year than by bringing it into your yoga space? Since it is a brand new color, there’s virtually no representation of it on the market (yet), but I think the periwinkle and purple tones in these props, activewear, and mats come pretty close. (Please don’t come for my nonexistent design degree.)
