Pantone Color Of The Year 2018

January 16, 2018

Pantone's illuminating yellow and ultimate grey

A new year means a new color and Pantone is making a daring splash in 2018! Pantone, Inc. took a big transformation from 2017’s bright green color they called “greenery” to a beautiful, deep purple called Pantone, Ultra Violet.

Ultra Violet brings in a new depth of thoughtfulness compared to past color choices. It represents originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us towards the future!

The executive director of Pantone Color Institute, Leatrice Eiseman said, “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 to what is yet to come.”

Luckily for us, a touch of Ultra Violet throughout your new home looks great pretty much anywhere!

Give your bedroom new depth with an Ultra Violet accent wall. Most people like to stick to neutral colors to play it safe, but just look at this beauty of a bedroom! Wow your guests with this bold and inventive design choice.  



Brighten up the most popular room in your home, the living room! Ultra Violet can really liven up a space that can sometimes become dull and cluttered. Matched with metallic, and dark hues, a beautiful ultra violet rug can be the key to transforming your living space!





Need to take baby steps? That’s okay! Start out with small pieces of home décor that include a splash of Ultra Violet. It will pop against neutral colors and give your space a dash of color!
