This year’s hot, trending color is actually rather cool. Each year, the Pantone Institute of Color selects a new Color of the Year, and for 2018, it’s PANTONE Ultra Violet. At Georgia Blinds & Interiors serving the greater Atlanta area, we know that many of our customers will be highly drawn to this color and will want to add it to their homes. If you want tips on how to do that, speak with one of our representatives today.
What Ultra Violet Represents
Last year’s Color of the Year, “Greenery,” had an earthy feel and represented a new beginning. This year, Ultra Violet offers the originality and visionary thinking that will take us into the future. It offers strategic direction around the world and opens the mind to what lies ahead and beyond. Long a symbol of unconventionality, counterculture icons such as Prince and Jimi Hendrix boldly brought to the forefront purples as a personal expression of their individuality. You’ll see numerous industries engaging with the color, from housewares to automotive.
Why Choose a New Yearly Color?
“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. Color is not a designer’s whim. Color trends come from where we are, where we want to go, and how people are feeling or not feeling. All industries that produce a product for fashion, home furnishings, hospitality, and automotive follow forecasted trends. Each industry takes the forecasted color direction and adjusts it to their area and products. Warmer-climate colors may be lighter, and cooler-climate colors may be a bit darker than the actual forecasted color. Pantone’s color trend and forecast publications provide color insight with varying viewpoints and industry focuses to meet today’s color decision-makers. Learn more about Pantone.
