2018 Pantone Color of the Year

Ultra Violet
Inventive and imaginative, Ultra Violet lights the way to what is yet to come

Pantone Color of the Year 2018

Ultra Violet is Pantone's color of the year for 2018. Ultra Violet, which cannot be seen in the light spectrum, leaves some up to our imagination. Pantone has taken this idea of a color that cannot been seen with the naked eye and have used the transcendence of this idea to create a color. This beautiful and rich interpretation of a dark royal purple with a splash of red is intended to aspire for something new and exciting.
Ultra Violet is showcased in the latest fashions, advertising and in home trends. It is a leader in the idea of contrasting colors with all the available grays and taupe neutrals that have been popular for the last few years.
 The paint industry has created their own color palettes that are also very rich and inviting. They are different than Pantone colors, but their colors choices actually work well with Ultra Violet.
 A couple of these leaders are Sherwin-Williams and Benjamin Moore. Sherwin-Williams has created  a darker, saturated Marine Blue called Oceanside. This color is a great compliment to Ultra Violet with some of the same contrast and tonal qualities. Benjamin Moore has changed up their color of the year to a rich red-orange color called Caliente. They have paired this color with blush, rose, grays, and golds. It is a warmer color palette. 
So this year there are choices! As never before. . .

As designers, we can help create a color story that fits your home and your style using these beautiful colors. We can go bold and glamorous or subtle and quiet, or anything in between. Whatever the direction, you can bet that Hoffman and Albers Interiors will have the newest colors available for your hands on dreaming, painting, playing, creating, and realizing the home of your dreams.
