Pantone's Colour Of TheYear

This year Pantone (colour systems) are celebrating ULTRA VIOLET as their colour of the year. Obviously it is perfect for those who love and embrace bold, punchy looks!



Pantone's colour for the year, 2018

Actually, it is the colour of mystery, spirituality, creativity and individuality, so it is certainly a colour with the potential for exciting and unexpected combinations.



Ultra violet is a powerful colour, but it can be toned down when contrasted with silver and grey

Bright clean purple and indigo is such a positive colour, tempered by pastel greys

While it offers a lot of power as a colour on it's own, it can be included with neutral, natural shades if more ​ subtlety is required. As an accent colour, cushions, throws, modern prints or other decorative home-wares are ways to combine the colour with existing neutral paint shades such as white, or soft pastel tones and light timbers.

A much softer example here in this indigo chinosoisie kantha quilt, showing that natural variations of ultra violet are very much possible.


This indigo chinoisorie kantha quilt shows a much softer look

Warm, rich mauves, balanced with neutral and natural shades of light timber and earthy green/grey


Warmer mauves, as accents to natural pastel hues

And...how can anything be more delightful than natural Ultra Deep Violet?


Lavender is definitely the most delightful form of ultra-violet
