Pantone’s 2018 Color of the Year – Ultra Violet

We always look forward to the annual surprise of Pantone’s Color of the Year. Especially during the winter when we start to feel like interior design is one big world of gray and white (grays and whites – we still love you). Color influences and inspires us all, so it’s fun to get creative with whatever new color(s) they choose, especially when we find a color in our profile that’s close to the one they named!

PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet

Purple is one of those love-it-or-hate-it colors that can be subtle and airy or bold and vibrant. Pantone says this year’s color of the year, Ultra Violet, is meant to be “dramatically provocative and thought-provoking, [communicating] originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.”

We recolored our mediterranean-inspired Granada pattern by Paul Schatz to spread the Ultra Violet love!

“The Pantone Color of the Year has come to mean so much more than ‘what’s trending’ in the world of design; it’s truly a reflection of what’s needed in our world today.” – Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute.

Now we’re thinking about all the other ways we’d use this purple hue! In 2016, a customer asked us to add purple into this ikat-inspired Loom border.

A very creative custom Loom mosaic border on the production floor. Love the purple to blue blend of jewel tones the client chose!

We actually have a large job of our Jacqueline Vine jewel glass mosaic in purple hues on the production floor right now. One of our clients was ahead of the game!
