PAN­TONE COLOUR OF THE YEAR 2018

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Shades Of Glory -

And the win­ner is Ul­tra Vi­o­let, a blue-based pur­ple. It is said to have the po­ten­tial to con­vey orig­i­nal­ity and vi­sion. Be­cause it has both warm and cool tem­per­a­tures, it’s ver­sa­tile. All shades of pur­ple mesh, but they have the abil­ity to part­ner well with com­ple­men­tary colours. If you’re a lit­tle sassy or drama is your mid­dle name, feel free to pair it with your choice of cit­rus, fuch­sia, rasp­berry, emer­ald and metallics like bronze golds.

14 Dusty pur­ples, while easy to live with, are still rich and in­dul­gent. They nat­u­rally lend them­selves to a luxe look, so go big on plush vel­vets and but­toned up­hol­stery. In­clude touches of mar­ble and old gold. A flat chalky paint fin­ish on your walls, and cool turquoise ac­cents, will keep the look fresh. As for hot pink, it amps up the bold­ness of the scheme.
