Trend Alert: 2018 is the Year for "Ultra Violet"
As we near 2018, individuality and experimentation are becoming more apparent in our everyday lives. Our world encompasses many different cultures, philosophies, and ideas, and the Pantone Color of the Year 2018 “Ultra Violet” embodies this. “Ultra Violet” is described as a blue-based purple that takes your awareness to a higher level and symbolizes creativity and non-conformity.
This enigmatic purple can be added to your apartment home to give off a calm, energetic, and mystical vibe. Here are three different ways to use this magnificent color:
1. Floor accents
If you have neutral furniture and flooring, it's a great idea to use a bright rug to stand out among all the grays, browns, and whites!
2. Accent walls
An "Ultra Violet" wall is a big statement. This bold and bright purple will bring attention to any decor that's placed on the wall. Not to mention, it looks so happy!
Sometimes a big purple wall or purple floor may be too overpowering. Use "Ultra Violet" decorations, such as lamps, pillows, coffee makers, vases, light fixtures, mats, and more.
There are so many ways to use this pretty purple. Every year, Pantone releases the color of the year that encompasses a moment in time with a deep meaning and message. Pantone is best known for their Pantone Matching System, which is a widely-used standardized color reproduction system.
