Ways to work ul­tra vi­o­let, the year’s hottest hue, into your home

Ul­tra Vi­o­let – or more specif­i­cally, Pan­tone 18-3838 – is the Pan­tone Colour of the Year for 2018. In­ter­ga­lac­tic, mys­te­ri­ous and moody, this blue-based pur­ple is eas­ier to pep­per through­out your home than it may first ap­pear. Pur­ple-toned light­ing pulled through med­i­ta­tive spa­ces brings a jux­ta­po­si­tion of calm­ing en­ergy to a room, while more vi­brant pops of this shade in fur­ni­ture and fur­nish­ings cre­ate the op­por­tu­nity to let your in­di­vid­ual style shine through. Mix with olive green – pur­ple’s di­rect op­po­site on the colour wheel – for the per­fect match. It’s true what they say, opposites do at­tract.

“Com­plex and con­tem­pla­tive, Ul­tra Vi­o­let sug­gests the mys­ter­ies of the cos­mos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the dis­cov­er­ies be­yond where we are now. – Pan­tone Color In­sti­tute ”
