Ultra Violet

January 1, 2018 


As we begin the new year and reflect on 2017, we often tend to ask ourselves, what’s next? We all know that Greenery dominated 2017, but nothing stays the same forever and that can certainly be said for interior and design trends. Pantone annually gives us a node in the direction for the colour forecast of the year. This year Pantone has announced their colour pick for 2018 is Ultra Violet. 



I’m sure we can say that we were not the only ones to be a little bit surprised by the choice, but after reading from Pantone the inspiration behind it and taking a bit of time to think about it. We’re quite excited! Purple certainly doesn’t fall under a safe category of colours. It’s a colour that almost in every shade and tone has a strong character. It will be interesting to see how this colour is used throughout the year, perhaps pushing people out of their comfort zone. Wither it is used as an accent or statement in a space, one thing is for sure, that it will be seen. 

Purple has been known to be associated with things such as magic, creativity and imagination. When you think about the inspiration from Greenery, being to connect with nature and to be conscious of our own wellness within us and surrounding us. Ultra violet focuses on encouraging our personal creativity and imagination, remembering to nature our creative souls and individuality. These two colours connect together with their inspiration but also by their tones.

We hope that Ultra Violet encourages those around it to tap into their creative side and use their imagination.

We wish everyone a wonderful New Year and can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store!
