Color is an amazing thing-not only does it add spice or zip to life, it also can impact emotion and creativity. And every year, the professionals at the Pantone Color Institute gather to determine what the year’s trending color will be. They take into account world events, cultural shifts, and even whether there will be an Olympics held that year. “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,” noted Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute. At Bretz Interiors here in Denver, we understand how important color can be in a home. If you’re interested in introducing color to a room or your whole house-whether that’s this year’s trending color or another hue you love-speak with one of our representatives today.
This Year’s Trending Color
For 2018, the Color of the Year is PANTONE Ultra Violet 18-3838. After last year’s “Greenery,” which had an earthy feel, and Ultra Violet soars in as a reflection of a new beginning. Both the fashion and the home décor industries will be embracing this provocative color direction in their designs.
More Than Purple
Traditionally, Ultra Violet has been considered a mystical or spiritual color. It leans more toward the blue end of the spectrum than to the 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. In fact, Hunter Douglas-the leader in the window fashions industry-has long produced window treatments in this color. You can find Ultra Violet in Somner® Custom Vertical Blinds, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades, Applause® & Duette® Honeycomb Shades, and Designer Screen Shades. You’ll also find it in anything from paint to bedding to furniture. If you want to add a little or a lot of Ultra Violet in your home, now’s your chance.
