Each year, the Pantone Color Institute chooses a “Color of the Year.” Last year, they chose Greenery, which had an earthy feel and was a color of hopefulness. This year, they’ve gone with the inspirational Ultra Violet, a purple hue that speaks of a new beginning. If you’re looking to add color to your home, perhaps Ultra Violet will speak to you. At Windows to the World here in Northeastern Pennsylvania, we’ll be happy to help you determine how to add a little or a lot to a room or your whole home. Speak with one of our representatives today.
Pantone is a universal color system that forecasters use to show the exact color that has been forecasted. Paint companies create the forecasted colors to actually put them on the walls. Pantone’s color trend and forecast publications provide color insight with varying viewpoints and industry focuses to meet today’s color decision-makers. Learn more about Pantone.
Get to Know Ultra Violet
Pantone’s 2018 Ultra Violet 18-3838 offers the originality and visionary thinking that will take us into the future. It opens the mind to what lies ahead and beyond and is a symbol of unconventionality and individuality. Historically, Ultra Violet has always been considered a mystical or spiritual color. You will see the purple-toned hue in communities that inspire connection, such as meditation spaces and other gathering places. Ultra Violet leans more toward the blue end of the spectrum than red. While there are still enough red undertones to add passion, it is the touch of periwinkle that makes the cool prevail, lending itself to unique color combinations in fashion. Perfect for days or evenings, you will see Ultra Violet in everything from eyewear to sneakers.
