Incorporating the Pantone Color of the Year into Your Life

“We are living in a time that requires inventiveness and imagination. It is this kind of creative inspiration that is indigenous to PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet, a blue-based purple that takes our awareness and potential to a higher level. 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. ” 

-Leatrice Eisman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute

 A shade so richly cosmic, one could hardly believe that Ultra Violet occurs organically in nature. This deeply dramatic hue conveys royalty, and pairs well with any other color. When the color catches our eye we are inspired towards originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking. From sweeping landscapes of lavender fields or high climbing vines of wisteria, caverns of amethyst, to the color embodiment of the crown chakra, this regal shade will invoke a higher vibration and reverence for all life.

“Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own.”

“Historically, there has been a mystical or spiritual quality attached to Ultra Violet. The color is often associated with mindfulness practices, which offer a higher ground to those seeking refuge from today’s over-stimulated world. The use of purple-toned lighting in meditation spaces and other gathering places energizes the communities that gather there and inspire connection.”

“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.”
