Pantone – Color of the Year


Pantone - Color of the Year
At the beginning of each year, Pantone announces its color of the year. They do this to represent the trending color and outlook that design will hold for that year. Ultra Violet is officially the color for 2018.


According to Pantone, Ultra Violet brings out the creativity and imagination in all of us. This color is here to help us explore and express ourselves in our designs.

Design Application

Jewel tones such as Ultra Violet have become very popular in the design world. These rich, saturated tones bring a lot of life to any space.

There are many ways to incorporate this expressive color into your home. Whether you are remodeling, painting, or simply changing out décor, there are endless ways that you can have fun with Ultra Violet.

A great way to incorporate this color into your home would be with either paint or wallpaper. I always encourage clients to have fun with the design of their powder bathroom. These are spaces that you can take advantage of if you want to experiment with your design style. Since these are generally smaller rooms that are typically not as formal, this is a great place where you could have a lot of fun and creativity with the Pantone color of the year. Adding a bold violet wallpaper is a fun, unique way to spice up your small space creating a fun experience for anyone that walks into the room.

If you are looking for a more subtle, less permanent way to embody this color in your home, I suggest adding small details that will make a big impact. Styling your spaces with anything from artwork, pillows, or even fresh flowers will add a pop of color that your guests will not forget.

Ultra Violet has already made a huge impact on 2018 interior design. Now the question is, what color will Pantone elect for next year?
