The highly-anticipated release of Pantone’s Colour of the Year sets the style for the 12 months ahead and we are sure that this year will be no different.
The Pantone Color Institute – the worldwide authority on colour – revealed the Ultra Violet hue at the close of 2017.
Stylists, fashion designers and interior gurus have applauded the colour, which is described as “inventive and imaginative”.
What Pantone says
“A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, Pantone 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future. 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. Nuanced and full of emotion, the depth of Ultra Violet symbolises experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets.”
Geometric lines and fluidity meet in this pastel fusion of colour entitled Amethyst Mine. It’s from Urban Road.
Purple has been used frequently in homes during the decades thanks to its ability to conjure thoughts of luxury, royalty and timelessness. Scour vintage stores to dig up unique pieces such as jewellery boxes, glasses, mirrors and lanterns.
This royal purple works beautifully when matched with soft greys and jewel tones such as blue, pink and emerald.
Purple is bold, bright and can make a big statement. Introducing the hue into the home can be done in various ways. It doesn’t have to have a strong presence – add a subtle purple weave with a floor rug or throw, a decorative vintage vase, or beautify a room with pretty flowers strategically placed in a jar or quirky vase.
