This Year’s Color of the Year
Pantone Ultra Violet 18-3838 is a reflection of a new beginning. It follows 2017’s “Greenery,” which had an earthy feel. Ultra Violet opens the mind to what lies ahead and beyond. Long a symbol of unconventionality, counterculture icons such as Prince and Jimi Hendrix boldly brought to the forefront purples as a personal expression of their individuality. Traditionally, Ultra Violet has been considered a mystical or spiritual color. You will see the purple-toned hue in communities that inspire connection, such as meditation spaces and other gathering places.
More About Ultra Violet
Ultra Violet leans more toward the blue end of the spectrum than red. While there are still enough red undertones to add passion, it is the touch of periwinkle that makes the coolness of the color prevail. Perfect for days or evenings, you will see Ultra Violet in everything from sneakers to eyewear.
Where to Use It in Your Home
If you like Ultra Violet, consider adding it to your walls, furniture, or bedding. Or, if you would like to see it at your windows, check out what Hunter Douglas offers in Ultra Violet tones:
