"Veri Peri is really on point, as lavender has taken a big front seat in interior design. I am drawn to this color, as it is very complex in the feelings it can bring to a room—and, in fact, has proven positive effects on our minds." — Prudence C. Bailey, Prudence Home & Design

"Periwinkle is found in many botanicals, and personally inspires a calm, relaxed, and peaceful feeling for me. For this reason, I use this shade in many of my linens as I really enjoy mixing periwinkle with shades of pinks and greens for a garden table setting." —Deborah Rhodes, tabletop designer



"Veri Peri is just the kind of color we need right now: Bold, happy, and a bit carefree! There are so many colors that I would pair with it, beyond black and white, like bold yellow or emerald. Such fun spaces and uses come to mind." — Tish Mills, Harmonious Living by Tish Mills Interiors

"Very Peri is a color that has duality; it creates exuberance, as if the musical genius Prince was residing in the room. And it portrays sheer elegance, as if you are walking through a field of fresh lavender in France." — Christina Roughan, Roughan Interior Design

"Veri Peri inspires spring and summer energy as well as the rich, crisp hues of fall and winter. The favored power color of royalty for centuries, it's the perfect hue to lead us into this new year." — Rhonda Eleish, Eleish Van Breems
