Windows 11 Bloom wallpaper is getting a new twist thanks to a partnership between Microsoft and Pantone. Microsoft just released a new theme on the Microsoft Store with four new Windows 11 wallpapers that emphasize Pantone’s Color of the Year 2022, 17-3938 Very Peri.
This color is a shade of purple and is described as a “dynamic shade of blue that combines the fidelity and consistency of blue with the energy and emotion of red.” The theme includes four wallpapers, all variations of Bloom’s original design with different patterns and themes. There is a light and dark version, plus a couple of versions where the Very Peri color is the background, with the “bloom” effect using different colors that stand out from the background. Some of these look great, and it’s always a good way to switch things up if you’re tired of standard wallpaper.
Due to the way the theme works, if you install it, you will have to toggle between these four images, although you can change the frequency to change them. But if you don’t want to do that, we have backed up the wallpapers as separate images, so you can use one or two wallpapers as you like. The images above are somewhat compressed, but if you want them in their original resolution (3840 x 2400), you can download them below. These images have a 16:10 aspect ratio, but because they are such a high resolution, you should be able to crop them to fit your screen without losing much of the quality.

If you’re a fan of more colorful wallpapers, Microsoft recently announced Windows 11 SE, a specialized version of Windows 11 for young learners. That operating system comes with a new version of Bloom’s wallpaper, with all kinds of colors. That’s one of my personal favorites, and if you want it for yourself, we’ve also made Windows 11 SE wallpaper available for download.
