PANTONE COLOUR OF THE YEAR 2018
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.
