Say goodbye to 2017, because the new year is all about looking forward! The 2018 Pantone Color of the Year, Ultra Violet, is no exception. It’s original and transformative – all things we strive to be as we contemplate what lies in the year ahead.
So just like fashion experts, bloggers, and graphic designers, we’ve made room in our homes (and hearts) for the color that’s sure to impress in 2018. Here are some tips for incorporating it into your space as well.
You Do You
A little Ultra Violet can go a long way, but don’t let that stop you from using the color as much as you want to. Like musical greats of the 20th century – think Jimmy Hendrix and Prince – Ultra Violet represents nonconformity, so why not use it to spark originality in your own space? Go big with bold furniture (yes! even a sofa!) or keep it subtle with accents like pillows and lamps.
Tempted by the Fruit
Ultra Violet and similar shades of purple show up everywhere in nature, from flowers to food, making it a no-brainer for the kitchen or dining room. Think glassware, utensils, pots and pans, or add decorative elements like a mirror or piece of wall decor.
Love + Healing
Just like outer space, Ultra Violet is mystical and contemplative. If you have a room where you like to meditate or reflect, consider adding lamps or geodes in similar shades.
