Pantone Color of the Year 2018: Ultra Violet Decorating and Makeup Ideas

ultra violet
The Pantone Color of the Year for 2018 is Ultra Violet. Ultra Violet is a beautiful blue based purple, a blue violet. It represents the vast night sky sparkling with stars and planets to spark our creativity and inspire us to reach for the stars. The Pantone Color Instutite is a color research and color information center. It's a color matching system used fashion, interior design, art, product manufacturing and more.

I'm long time fan of the regal purple. I wear it on myself with clothes, makeup and nail polish and decorate my home and gardens with it. It pairs quite well with green in home decorating just as it does in nature.

One of my favorite table settings was a purple and green theme for Easter a few years ago. Little pots of blue violet pansies wrapped in lavender tissue paper, lilacs in small crystal vases and candles in shades of green made a fresh springy centerpiece for the table.

The walls in the dining room were hunter green then. Now they are Sherwin Williams Wallflower, a mauve lavender shade of purple.

I highly recommend it. It's so bright and cheery! It really brightened up this room located in the eastern corner of my house.

Purple paint may be too much for your taste. You can always add touches of purple with pillows, throws and nick-nackery.
