Mark the date, December 7th, 2017. Pantone has finally announced their Color of the Year, and it is everything we could have hoped for!

After a year of fresh Greenery, the time has come for Pantone to announce the color that will be making its way into our hearts during the upcoming year. That moment of truth was today, and we can joyfully say that Pantone Color of the Year 2018 is… ~drumrolls, please~ Ultra Violet!

It was this Thursday, Dec. 7 that Pantone unveiled their color of the year for 2018. After a lot of buzz and people hoping for a darker tone this time, Pantone gracefully presented us with Ultra Violet, a shade of purple that won’t stay out of our minds.

“Inventive and imaginative, Ultra Violet lights the way to what is yet to come.” That’s how Pantone presented Ultra Violet to the world. After a renewed year filled with fresh starts and Greenery, Pantone is now trying to bring the idea of originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking to the table, getting us to think about that in 2018. Ultra Violet comes to emphasize the idea of the magic world we live in, of what might lie ahead of us and the discoveries that are beyond where we are right now.

In home decor

When it comes to home decor, Ultra Violet comes to break boundaries and help interior designers bring the idea of self-expression into a room. An accent color by excellence, there is no way a room will ever be the same after having been added a pop of Ultra Violet.

Expressing a will of breaking boundaries, Ultra Violet is the right choice if you are looking to get a bolder look for your interior. You can use it in a big accent piece, or in small details across your living room, for example.

In the fashion industry

Pantone had already presented their Fashion Color Palettes for Spring 2018 a few months ago. Hidden, they put Ultra Violet on display for everyone to dream about the rich fabrics that could be used to make bespoke and couture pieces. Well, now it only seems mandatory to see Ultra Violet on the big runways next February.

Salvatore Ferragamo had his eye on Ultra Violet well before all of us and boasted this rich counterculture hue on their Fall ’17 runway show. All we can say for now is that we will be hoping to see more of this color on the New York Fashion Week, Paris, and Milan runways in the beginning of the year!
