January 5, 2018 – The 2018 Pantone Color of the Year is Ultra Violet. A combination of calming blue and fierce red, the color purple (or violet) is said to symbolize wisdom, peace, and creativity. However, this color has a history of gravity that goes back centuries.

Not commonly found in nature, purple has long been associated with royalty – as only the wealthy could afford the purple dyes for their fabrics. Although purple is much easier to come by these days, it still has the ability to express the same elegance and richness that it’s long been known for.

If you’re looking to incorporate more purple into your life, and your home, there are a number of ways to go about doing so. Small changes could include a piece of art, pillows, throws, or accessories like candles and flowers. Looking to make a bigger change? Perhaps a statement piece such as a couch, chair, or area rug. Or, if you are really committed, paint an accent wall!

It may seem out-of-this-world, but however you use it, this cosmic color is sure to help express your personal style.
