Hey, guys! Happy Tuesday! 🙂 I hope you’re in the midst of a beautiful and productive week.
I always look forward to blogging about the Pantone Color of the Year. It’s a little something I wait for in December. How about you? I like being introduced to the color, reading up on it, and then looking out for it! It’s kind of fun bein’ on the hunt. 😉
I have to admit that this year’s color took a little bit of time for me to warm up to it. It reminded me so much of a cartoon-y purple and I was a little bit disappointed.
In preparation for this post, I read up on it and the energy put forth behind this color is really awesome. We’re in a time when we need all the positivity we can get! And the fact that this color is a color of hope and promise? I kind of love that.
We’re in luck with this color, too — purple goes with everything! It’s a universal color, lending itself to whatever else you have in a room.
Ultra violet is all about vibrancy. I think that is what I do really like about it. It’s not a flat color — it’s dimensional and full of life. Slightly neon maybe?
It can also be muted, like these chairs. They’re still punchy, but they’re a little on the subdued side.
Blues look exceptionally pretty with ultra violet, too. I love the mix of shades of all of the colors in this living space. It’s simply a blue and purple color palette thrown a bunch of different ways! Green is the secret BFF of any purple, though. They’re always buddies.
Playful color, playful application. 🙂
I mean who wouldn’t want to see this when they arrived home every day?! I wish I knew the source! 😦
A little bit of regency, anybody? A favorite of mine.
Of course, in a large application of ultra violet like this foyer, black and white is a great way to break it up / ground the space. Black and white’s just good at that. 🙂
I’m sure you’re on the edge of your seat wondering if ultra violet has found its way into fashion and that answer would be yes! 😉 Admittedly, my daily wardrobe borderlines more with faSHUN than fashion, but here’s some fun eye candy…
If you’ve made it this far, whew, thank you!
Will you be using ultra violet somewhere in your home this year? Pillows and flowers are very non-committal… Would not suggest the purple carpet. 😉
