Last year, Greenery was the belle of the ball, and in 2016, Rose Quartz and Serenity shared the great distinction. I'm talking, of course, about the Color of the Year, an honor bestowed upon one beautiful shade by Pantone Color Institute each year since 2000. This year's selection, ultra violet, is already starting to show up on everything from interior design blogs and corporate branding, to makeup and fashion trends, and everywhere in between. It's also becoming a prominent feature on new book covers that are totally rocking the Color of the Year, so if you're looking to decorate with ultra violet, look no further than the bookstore.
For the last 18 years, Pantone Color Institute has been inspiring designers, brands, and individuals with the annual Color of the Year. In 2018, the crown rest upon Ultra Violet's head, a shade that "communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future," according to Pantone. A color beloved by unique and original icons including Prince, David Bowie, and Grace Jones, Ultra Violet is the perfect shade for the current moment in which everyone from artists, activists, and every day Americans are striving to leave their mark on the world.
