Ultra Violet, aka purple, THE colour for 2018

Now I’m a bit weird in that Pantone’s announcement towards the end of any given year of their Color Of The Year for the upcoming year, is one I await with bated breath. We all know the effect of rose quartz had in 2016…it pretty much was the basis for the whole millennial pink trend that is still going strong. Last year it was greenery and weren’t plants THE thing to have in the home last year? 2018 is the year of Ultra Violet, ‘A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, Ultra Violetย  communicates originality, ingenuity and visionary thinking that points us to the future.’ (Pantone)

Are you a fan of purple? I never used to be, but it’s growing on me…paler shades especially. Lavender was huge at all the fashion weeks in the latter half of 2017 both on and off the catwalk;

So are you in or are you out? I’m both feet in…in small amounts! I’m going to embrace this colour but via details, accessories and maybe the odd pattern ๐Ÿ˜‰
