Ultra Violet: Pantone Color of the Year, 2018

December 12, 2017

By Tab Byrum

We’re taking a little break today from coverage of all things Christmas to look at the just-announced Pantone Color of the Year for 2018, Ultra Violet. The first thing I thought of when saw this color was rock star Prince and his love of the color purple, in both his clothing and his songs. Pantone says about Ultra Violet, “Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own.” I’ve said before that Purple is not my favorite color but I have to admit it’s growing on me and I do love to mix it with certain other colors, like orange, red, and green. This Ultra Violet hue of purple is gorgeous and would look wonderful as the main color of a room or outfit as well as an accent color. I’ll share a look at some images today of Ultra Violet in the design world and hopefully, you’ll find some inspiration. Enjoy!!! (above image via)

A lilac-colored wall gives way to stronger and more vibrant Ultra Violet colored drapes. I love how this looks with the Black and White checked tablecloth. (via)

Are you a fan of Ultra Violet or not so much? It’s a beautiful color that I can do in small doses. Have a great day and Enjoy!!!
