How To Decorate Your Bathroom With Pantone’s 2018 Color Of The Year – Since 1990, the Pantone Color Institute has nominated a Color of the Year, predicting a hue that designers and consumers will wear, use and buy for the following 12 months. This time, Pantone announced that the 2018 Color of the Year is Ultra Violet. Pantone’s Ultra Violet is bold in hue and social statement.
Pantone describes it as “an enigmatic purple shade that evokes the inventive spirit and imaginative thinking that challenges the status quo.” More than just a color, Pantone’s Color of the Year seems to be making a cultural statement.
“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,” executive director of the Pantone Color Institute Leatrice Eiseman said in a statement.
The rich purple is a strong departure from the fresh, grassy color that Pantone chose last year called Greenery — a shift that was completely intentional. “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,” said Eiseman.
Pantone notes that the Ultra Violet color has often been used to represent nonconformity and artistic brilliance. The company cites music icons like Prince, David Bowie and Jimi Hendrix as proponents of this Ultra Violet color and the creative expression it represents.
Unlike other “Colors of the Year” put out by paint companies, Pantone’s color forecasts are used across many industries including fashion, consumer products, graphic and packaging. You’re guaranteed to see this color popping up in home design and interiors.
“Purple is one of the most dynamic shades in the color spectrum, and when styled correctly, can add an air of confidence and originality to a space,” said Behr color expert Rob Hellander. “For a regal, energizing look, pair it with lighter, contrasting blues and terra cotta oranges.”
The complexity of the jewel-toned Ultra Violet can add interest and brightness to your home, pushing the boundaries of your décor and, if Pantone has anything to say about it, your life.
