  • At the start of the year, Pantone announced that Ultra Violet will be the color of the year for 2018. Shades of purple don’t need to attatch themselves to a season to work well with every style. Whether you scatter violets throughout your home or paint an accent wall with a shade of lavender, purple is a universal serene and beautiful color that brings character to any room.

    Start with the outside and work your way in. Purple plants and flowers are in abundance in the upcoming spring months and they will definitely give your backyard a pop of color. To get a cohesive look, match your floral centerpiece to your seat cushions. Although your flowers of choice may change over the year, this dusty shade of purple is perfect for any season.

    A color like Ultra Violet can be hard to committ to. If blue is more your hue, try picking a soft shade with purple undertones. This color will help to keep your bedroom cool and clean, while the little bit of purple makes the space feel more romantic.
