The Future is Now with Ultra Violet

Friday, June 8th, 2018

A stark contrast from last year’s color of the year, Ultra Violet is blasting into the spotlight as Pantone’s 2018 selection. It’s dramatic, contemplative, and complex and it is ready to become a part of your home.

Each year, Pantone selects one color swatch to serve as their color of the year. From the moment it is announced, this color explodes onto everything from furniture and home décor to clothing and advertisements. It is everywhere.

This year’s color, “Ultra Violet,” is all about the mystery and intrigue of the unknown. As the executive director of the Pantone color institute, Leatrice Eiseman, describes:

“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.”

So what does this mean for your home? As every interior designer knows, color can completely change the ambiance of a room. Here are some ways to incorporate “Ultra Violet” into your home.


For a subtle approach, an accent rug is a perfect addition to a living room.


Elegant and charming, these tufted sofas can bring some flair to your space.


This Ultra Violet ottoman is both fashionable and functional when you want a more subdued pop of color.


Bringing a strong accent color into an otherwise monotoned room can help liven it up.


For a more dramatic approach, a full Ultra Violet accent wall can bring a room together with flair.
