Ultra Violet is a deep shade of purple, and can be incorporated into your home no matter your design style.


“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.



As individuals around the world become more fascinated with color and realize its ability to convey deep messages and meanings, designers and brands should feel empowered to use color to inspire and influence. The Color of the Year is one moment in time that provides strategic direction for the world of trend and design, reflecting the Pantone Color Institute’s year-round work doing the same for designers and brands.


Psychology of Color was one of my favorite interior design courses in college.  It’s so interesting to me how color effects our mood.  It’s always exciting to see the new Color of the Year every January, and I look forward to incorporating it into my upcoming design projects.
