Pantone’s 2018 Purple

December 9, 2017

I am sure you have already heard this week on social media that Pantone has announced it’s color of the year for 2018:


Ultra Violet 18-3838. Pantone chose this complex color to reflect a “complex” time. According to Pantone, Ultra Violet is a “provocative yet thoughtful” color. Historically, it’s been associated with nonconformity and spirituality. Pantone also believes this color symbolizes new possibilities and a hopeful future.

I just finished a living room design plan for a client and wanted to share with you. Margaret was ready to update her room from boring to beautiful!

I do not think purple looks childlike. Do you? I have been seeing more and more of the purples, lilacs, violets, plum and orchids in interior design. I love it!! How about you?
