Ultra Violet Pantone’s 2018 color of the Year
Pantone’s color of the year for 2018 is Ultra Violet. Do you know for about 30 years my favorite color was purple. My wedding was purple. It was always easy when you played those games where you had to guess your teammate’s favorite color. Mine never changed until about 3 years ago. Now it is black, pitch black, dark black, light black, pastel black, midnight black etc….
Fashion, florals, and interiors, are all linked to the color of the year. The inspiration of all of these designers are intertwined together and used in collaboration with a lot more than we even know. I can get inspiration from the craziest things. Like I said at Christmas, my theme came from a scarf and a friend of mine used a rug design for her theme.
This color actually has a blue base and compliments the already trendy grays used in many homes. Many florists are fans of purple as it is a common and favorite spring/summer color for landscapes and floral arrangements. I wonder if we will see this color back as a popular wedding color.
2016’s Pantone colors of the year were Rose Quartz and Serenity, a shade of baby blue. This pink hue really took off and led the way. The whole industry became pink obsessed and honestly still is. To this day, pink is considered a neutral that goes with many other shades. It is used frequently among fashionistas and interior designers bag of tricks to bring a feminine touch to an outfit or room. If ultra violet is not your color then pink and soft blushes are still pretty popular so you could always choose that shade. whatever your preference, use it with confidence to reflect your personality and you can’t go wrong.
