In 2018, the fashion influencers at Pantone want you to inspire, invent and imagine with their choice for color of the year:

Ultra Violet

“We are living in a time that requires inventiveness and imagination,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. “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.”

Shades of Ultra Violet have been used at the forefront of pop culture by the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Prince and David Bowie. Above all, they are synonymous with boldness and personal expression. Ultra Violet is meant to push the boundaries of creativity and spur individuality.

As a centerpiece

This dark, contemplative shade of is the perfect color of choice for mediation spaces. Ultra Violet’s calming presence can help bring inner peace and a clear mind – values necessary for the practice. Be daring on walls or furniture or simple and subtle on your yoga mat, for instance.

Ultra Violet’s boldness can be used as a creative outlet, much like the rock and roll and pop pioneers of the past. This shade is a great choice for any space to make a statement in.

White can bring out the best in any color and Ultra Violet is no exception. Pair white or marble tiles like Legacy or Macau Pattern Wood Tile in your kitchen, foyer or master bathroom for a collaboration of whimsy and boldness.

Subtle blue-tones in Ultra Violet make it a perfect pairing with blue-hinted tile like Ashton Park or carpet styles like Madera or Pudge. Therefore, the blues in these pairings heightens their presence and creates a cool, calming space.

However, you can use any combination of tile combinations to create a mosaic of your own using white, blue and Ultra Violet.

As an accent

Not looking to go all out on color scheme? In addition, Ultra Violet can serve as an accent or be subtler as well.

Ultra Violet shades are common in jewelry, blown glass, china, rugs, pillows and even flowers in warm months. Wrapping yourself in a purple blanket after a long day is sure to set your mind at ease too.

In conclusion, decorate to your desires, using as little or as much as you want and in whatever combination inspires you most.
