Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2018 – Ultra Violet

The long-awaited announcement has been made; the Pantone Colour of the Year is… Ultra-Violet.

While the choice of this colour may be a mystery to some, the Pantone Colour Institue’s Executive Director, Leatrice Eiseman, sums up their decision quite succinctly, ‘We are living in a time that requires inventiveness and imagination. It is this kind of creative inspiration that is indigenous to PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet, a blue-based purple that takes our awareness and potential to a higher level. From exploring new technologies and the greater galaxy to artistic expression and spiritual reflection, intuitive Ultra Violet lights the way for what is yet to come.’

Well, when you put it like that, their decision does make more sense. This controversial hue is like nothing we’ve seen before and harks in a new era of bold-decision making in the home.

So how exactly to adopt this provocative colour into the home? We suggest starting off with a few accent pieces, such as an upholstered occasional chair or ottoman and some scatter cushions. If you’re feeling brave look at creating a feature wall with one of our Ultra Violet wallpapers or a set of curtains in a seductive luxe velvet fabric.
