Pantone’s 2018 colour of the year is vibrant and futuristic


Pantone announced Ultra Violet as the Colour of The Year for 2018. The colour is said to communicate originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that will point us towards the future.

According to the Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute, Leatrice Eiseman “We are living in a time that requires inventiveness and imagination. It is the 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.”

Be inspired by these local homes and offices that have boldly taken on this shade in their spaces.

Bedrooms are a great space to start exploring this bold and vibrant shade. These homes incorporated a purple hue into the bedroom via their walls, headboard, and even bedsheets.

If you’d rather flaunt the vibrant hue in a common space, consider making it the tone of your accent wall. These homes and retail spaces used purple to elevate the aesthetic of their rooms.

You can also incorporate Ultra Violet in a less permanent way using décor pieces. It is a subtle way to be on trend while remaining true to the style of your home. Think rugs, chairs, and even curtains.
