Do you ever notice how colors seem to trend across a variety of products and arenas each year? For example, in fashion, you might see a lot of the same color you’re seeing in home décor elements. The reason that happens is that the Pantone Color Institute selects a new trending color each year. And sometimes, that color might just be right for a room or your whole home. If you’d like ideas about how to get this year’s trending color in your home, speak with a representative at Custom Creations & Interiors here in Marble Falls. We’ll be happy to help you with some tips!
The 2018 Color of the Year
This year’s Color of the Year is PANTONE® 18-3838, Ultra Violet. Symbolizing originality and visionary thinking, Ultra Violet opens the mind to what lies ahead and beyond. Many industries will be embracing this provocative color direction in their designs. Long a symbol of unconventionality, counterculture icons such as Prince and Jimi Hendrix boldly brought to the forefront purples as a personal expression of their individuality. Here’s a little more about the color:
- Ultra Violet has always been considered a mystical or spiritual color. You will see the purple-toned hue in communities that inspire connection, such as meditation spaces and other gathering places.
- Ultra Violet leans more toward the blue end of the spectrum than red. While there are still enough red undertones to add passion, it is the touch of periwinkle that makes the cool prevail, lending itself to unique color combinations in fashion.
- Paired with metallic colors, you think luxurious. Paired with greens, it brings out nature. Perfect for days or evenings, you will see Ultra Violet in everything from eyewear to sneakers.
About the Pantone Color Institute
Selecting the Color of the Year takes approximately nine months. The staff at Pantone explores a variety of industries to collect what they refer to as “proof points.” They review the latest from the auto industry, designer runways, and interior decorating showcases. Once they identify the trends, they narrow down the choices. “The Pantone Color of the Year has come to mean so much more than ‘what’s trending’ in the world of design; it’s truly a reflection of what’s needed in our world today,” noted Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute. Pantone’s color trend and forecast publications provide color insight with varying viewpoints and industry focuses to meet today’s color decision-makers. Learn more about Pantone.
