2018: The Year of Ultra Violet

Earlier this week the Pantone Color Institute announced their pick for Colour of the Year! The institute focuses on identifying global colour trends and for 2018 they have painted the world purple….



Ultra Violet (or colour 18-3838) is described by Pantone as:

“Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own.”


Colour us inspired!

We did some hunting and found a few items that can bring a pop of Ultra Violet into your room of choice…

Happy Colouring!
