Smell is one of our most important senses and is closely linked with memory. Good smells can evoke happy memories and experiences while bad smells can do the opposite. Smell is also highly emotive, meaning different fragrances can convey a vast array of emotions and feelings. So, it should be no surprise that smell can come into play when you’re trying to sell your home.

Most people want to gather as much information as they can before they make a decision. Let’s be honest, asking Google for an answer is something we all do, likely on a daily basis! However, it’s so important to make sure you’re getting accurate and up to date information that’s relevant to your particular situation.

In 2000, the Pantone Colour Institute created the Pantone Colour of the Year as a trendsetting concept. For the very first time, the Pantone Colour of The Year for 2022 has been created especially for the occasion. As this new year begins, the Institute wanted to recognize the significant ways our lives have changed with the pandemic and, as a result, how our collective creativity is expanding to new levels to meet our current reality. 


Prior to 2022, all previous colours were chosen from the existing colours in the Pantone Color System. Without further ado, the brand-new colour and the 2022 Pantone Colour of the Year is Very Peri!
