Color Game : Ultra Violet / 2018 Pantone Color of the Year

posted on

 

"Ultra Violet" is the 2018 Pantone "Color of the Year."  Could this dark, dull grayish purple be a new neutral?

As Pantone describes, "Nuanced and full of emotion, the depth of PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets."  Whew!  That's a lot to expect of a color.  Let's take a look at how we can incorporate "the color of the year" into our rooms for 2018.

While grayish purples have been around for centuries, it's fresh to call it "Ultra Violet" for 2018.  Luxurious, timeless and a new neutral.  Pantone Color of the Year traditionally influences interiors, cars, clothing and makeup.  Here's to a violaceous kind of year.

  • Thanks for the comment, Becky.
    I like this Ultra Violet as I think it’s something men could live with and it not be too girly!

  • Thank you for the reminder! I love every shade of purple that exists and although I wear it all the time, there’s not a speck of it in this house decor. Somethings gotta change ?
