Decorating With Pantone’s 2018 Color Of The Year

(The Washington Post)

Usher in the new year by infusing a bright new color, like Ultra Violet, an intense purple that the Pantone Color Institute has dubbed the “it” color of 2018, into your home decor.

Describing it as “dramatically provocative and thoughtful,” Pantone says the color communicates “originality, ingenuity and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.”

New York design duo Jamie Drake and Caleb Anderson of Drake/Anderson offered some suggestions on using the rich, vibrant shade at home.

“Ultra Violet is a dynamic, bold hue, and we suggest going bold with its application,” Drake and Anderson said in an email. “Use it on the walls for drama, or upholster a sofa in the rich color.”

Even if you’d prefer it in smaller doses, “there isn’t a combination Ultra Violet won’t work with,” they added. “It all depends on how you play with the shade, tone and quantity.”
