Every year, the Pantone Color Institute announces its trend colour of the year; for 2018, this is Ultra Violet. This vibrant colour will undoubtedly be showing up frequently this year in fashions, make-up and home decor. It might not be the first colour you think of for interior design, but it can actually be quite stunning!

Pantone describes Ultra Violet as complex and contemplative, saying that it’s closely associated with mindfulness and cosmology. ‘From exploring new technologies and the greater galaxy to artistic expression and spiritual reflection, intuitive Ultra Violet lights the way to what is yet to come.’
