Every December, designers and marketers eagerly await the announcement of the Pantone Color of the Year. After the announcement, you can expect to see all sorts of products in the shade. From tissue boxes to sofas, it starts popping up all over the place till the next color is announced. Last year’s color was a fresh, leafy green. It was a super usable color that went with lots of different styles and decor.
This year’s Pantone Color of the Year is a little less versatile, but it’s a total stunner. It’s a vivid blue-purple called Ultra-Violet. Whoever writes the copy for Pantone has quite a lot to say about this mystical color. Check out the Pantone Color of the Year homepage to see the essay on Ultra-Violet.
Unlike last year, most folks would not consider painting their walls bright purple. This one is best in smaller doses. So, how does a trendy homeowner incorporate this shade into their home without creating a fortune-teller’s den? Here are some ideas to add some pops of ultra-violet to you home!
