Every year, Pantone comes out with the color of the year. This color sets the tone for decorating for the entire year that symbolizes the cultural mood that exists at the beginning of the year. The 2018 color of the year is Ultra Violet. A vibrant purple that symbolizes the creative spirit, cleverness, and forward thinking that helps the human race to move into the future.
Ultra Violet is a blue-based purple that triggers contemplative thought as it invokes the feelings of deep space and what lies past our wildest dreams. This color brings out the need for discovery and the passion for exploring the world.
Purple has long been utilized by the artistic genius, those that go against the grain, and the counterculture. David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix, and Prince all embraced the vibrant enigma that Ultra Violet represents. These cultural icons expressed their individuality and forward thinking natures in their music, and love of shades of purple. The exhilaration of this color doesn’t conform, and neither should you. Experimentation and moving forward is the key to grasp this year.
Ultra Violet and the purple palette have historically had this connection to spiritualism and mysticism. Being mindful and practicing mindful habit in seeking higher ground to escape the everyday world’s hustle and bustle. Gathering places and meditation spaces can benefit from this royal color.
