Pantone recently announced their much-anticipated Color of The Year: PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet. Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute explained, “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. From exploring new technologies and the greater galaxy, to artistic expression and spiritual reflection, intuitive Ultra Violet lights the way to what is yet to come.”
This color is striking, unexpected, and dramatic. Its now-trending status opens many new and exciting opportunities for interior design. Whether you want to incorporate small violet accents, or you want to paint all of your walls, floors, and ceiling in 18-3838, we invite you to explore the energy this color can generate in your home.
