Every year the Pantone Color Institute after careful consideration of all artistic industries, arrives at a color choice for the year. Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute states, “The Pantone Color of the Year has come to mean so much more than “what’s trending” in the world of design; it’s truly a reflection of what’s needed in our world today.” This year the Pantone Color Institute has chosen Ultra Violet 18-3838 as the color for 2018, a mystical and imaginative color choice.
I love their reasoning for their color choice of Ultra Violet. When it comes to the color of the year choice, there is much thought and consideration towards the many creative expressions throughout several industries. From the world of fashion, to print and websites design, artistic performances, to accent colors in the home, all the way to trending nail colors, Ultra Violet will make it’s statement of beauty throughout the world in 2018.
As I read more about the reasons behind the Pantone color choice, I was amazed at the depth of their consideration for this decision. Leatrice Eisman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, “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 technologies and the greater galaxy, to artistic expression and spiritual reflection, intuitive Ultra Violet lights the way to what is yet to come.”
I absolutely believe that what we surround ourselves with has a tremendous impact on how we live and enjoy our lives. When it comes to design of your home, the colors you bring in can have a beautiful effect on the feel of your home and how you truly enjoy it. Ultra Violet makes a beautiful accent color to really add flavor to any room, whether it be with accent pillows, a gorgeous bouquet of violet flowers to window coverings laced with Ultra Violet to give your windows a rich look. There are many ways to bring this gorgeous color to life in your home. It is a most regal and beautiful color that does induce creativity, artistic expression and at the same time has a beautiful grounding effect to cultivate more awareness within ourselves and how we can contribute our gifts to the world.
Should you have any questions on how to add this beautiful color or any other color to your home, please contact me for a consultation.
Wishing you all a most wonderful 2018 full of inspiration and creativity!!
