It took me few days to digest Pantone’s color of the Year 2018. Ultra Violet. As a professional in interior design field, of course, I imagined a room full of this color.... And said no. But then… Pantone reviews trends and influences in many industries, such as beauty, fashion, graphics, and interiors, and touches of violets and purple can be seen in many applications. So, for the interiors I think a bit of it, as an accent, would be a great compliment to greys, lavender, gold, and creams.
It was also in the back of my mind that earlier this year purple popped somewhere for me. Those were two things: Burt’s Bees mural in Durham (swipe to see) and my recent blouse purchase! I actually remember thinking “What a fresh look! Just a dash of purple!” Ok, I am limited in colors I wear due to salt & pepper hair but that’s another story… And the last photo is a multicolor madness rug from one of my vendors – what a statement it would be in the space! With a touch of ultra violet!
