COLOR OF THE YEAR ULTRA VIOLET

PANTONE’S COLOR OF THE YEAR ULTRA VIOLET

Let’s chat about this color…I particularly love the impact that this color can have on your space. Whether you use it as an accent color or go all out with it this color has a way of bringing some thoughtful drama to any environment. The impact it can have is vivid and inspiring but still soft. I like to describe this color as mindful but magical!

As a designer the versatility of the color is very interesting. Ultra violet naturally has both cool and warm temperatures. This characteristic can make the color adaptable in almost any surrounding. Which brings me to the question I have been asked so many times “Ultra violet…….what does that go with?!” WELL the answer is that purples in general serve as strong complimentary colors and can really be paired with so many different colors. The experimenting aspect of using this color can result in unexpected, beautiful and even elegant spaces. 

I for one am really excited to see the transformations for this color throughout the year. Not only in design but in fashion and art. The creativity, the combinations, and the experimenting with this BOLD choice in color throughout the design industry will be one to watch!
