Pantone’s new color of the year for 2018 is Ultra Violet! This vibrant shade has been described as “sacred, mystic violet. The color of imagination and spirituality.” Pantone hopes this rich purple hue will inspire us to create a better future.
The color purple has made appearances in many places outside of the fashion world. It pops up on car show runways, restaurant menus, and even food trucks across the globe. This vibrant shade is popular because it’s eye catching yet doesn’t overpower other colors when paired with them; making it an easy choice for people everywhere to incorporate this hue into their lives without feeling overwhelmed or boring by its presence alone
The color Ultra Violet embodies a lot of what’s going on in the world today, as well as our own individual lives. Because it’s made up of “seemingly diametrically opposed” colors — blue and red — it reflects that every situation has two sides to consider. It brings together darkness with light–symbolizing pragmatic optimism we’re all feeling right now during these times where everything seems so complicated but also hopeful at the same time!
The color purple also symbolizes royalty, making this an ideal choice for 2019 which will see another royal wedding.
This rich and bold shade of purple is the perfect way to add some excitement in your home. We definitely see Ultra Violet working as a dramatic accent wall, especially for our dining room. You could also bring it into your living room with a cool purple sofa or even smaller accents like throw pillows, ceramics, and artwork! For an even more subtle vibe you can incorporate this color through these items rather than on its own throughout various rooms in your house.
