Pantone announced their color of the year for 2018:

What do you think?

Pantone describes the color as “complex and contemplative.” They say, “Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now.” Their description does seem apt when you consider the “photo” above.

When toned down with white trim, this color makes a very regal room as seen in this example from Decorare:

It makes a great, bold accent wall in a kid’s room as seen in this photo shared by Nerolac Paints:Interior Decorator Calm & Collected shared this interior design photo of a purple room from Nerolac Paints

You can bring ultra violet into your home through bedding like this 8 piece set found on Wayfair**: 

Or maybe just a few accent pieces like GZ Interior Design used in these pillows and chairs in this living room:  Ultra Violet would also look great on the outside of a home! How about on the front door?

Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, 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.”

Sounds good to me!
