As announced by the famous Pantone Institute, the most fashionable color of 2022 is the color of Vera Peri, a gentle shade of blue tinged with violet. If you like to follow the latest trends when arranging your interiors, try to introduce the violet color to the arrangement of your premises - shop, cafe, restaurant or hotel interior. But not only! Maybe you can offer your customers a purple color in their dishes? 


Why Violet?


Violet in interiors and dishes gives you a lot of possibilities! It is a color that can be mysterious, elegant, sensual as well as light. It is associated with prestige and gentleness at the same time. In spite to appearances, it is extremely universal! According to the Pantone Institute, it is a color that should encourage personal invention and creativity. Being a combination of red with a calm blue, it perfectly illustrates the social need to combine extremes and open up to the new.The violet color itself also has a rich history. It symbolizes power and luxury, and on the other hand, rebellion and artistic fervor of a person who likes to be surrounded by it. Violet is a color for connoisseurs of beauty and surprising details. One violet element is enough to obtain the effect of elegance and taste.


What color goes with Violet?

  • Violet with white, grey, beige. In such a combination, purple will focus all attention on itself. If you place a violet-colored device against an off-white wall, you will get a very delicate and subtle effect that will work well in Provencal, as well as classic or modern interior.  
  • Violet with brown, graphite or black. This combination is elegant but you must remember to use violet as a feature color only. 
  • Violet with bright green. If you want a breath of freshness and exoticism, this combination is for you. 
  • Violet and sunny yellow. If you are looking to improve your mood, choose this combination.  
  • Violet with gold or silver. If you want to give your arrangements a refined and slightly mysterious character, choose gold or silver.

For the second course, add the purple potatoes to the meat and the violets to the salad. The purple accent on the plate will attract not only the youngest. When your kitchen is out of inspiration, add purple to your plate. Many studies confirm that colors have a real impact on human appetite. We suggest purple/violet products:


  • Lavender is used mainly in French, Spanish and Italian cousines. Due to it’s intense smell it should be used in small amounts. A few lavender shoots can be used, for example, for roast mutton, fish stewed meat with vegetables or fish jelly. 
  • Truffle potatoes, it turns out that due to the purple color, they have more benefits than ordinary potatoes. They get this color due to anthocyanins - natural dyes that have healing properties. Unlike other purple vegetables, truffle potatoes have a purple skin and center. Research also shows that purple potatoes have an anti-inflammatory effect and a beneficial effect on the system due to their high anthocyanin content. 
  • Aubergines ideal for slimming diets as it is low in calories. 
  • Red cabbage is an excellent source of protein, fiber, carbohydrates, vitamins C, K, B1, B2, B6, A, and minerals such as potassium and, in smaller amounts, iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, copper and zinc. 
  • Red onions contain potassium, sulfur, calcium, magnesium, iron, manganese, copper, zinc, as well as a number of B vitamins, as well as vitamin E and vitamin C. Remember that red onions are also low in calories. 
  • Blueberries are a source of many vitamins and minerals. They contain selenium, copper, zinc and mangnesium. In addition, we can find vitamins C, A, B, PP. Blueberries are also a rich source of fiber. 
  • Plums regulate digestion, protect against free radicals and even improve the mood. Prunes are richer in terms of nutrition, vitamins and fiber, but have five times more calories than raw plums.
