Pantone’s color for 2018: ULTRA VIOLET

Long time readers will know I’ve always had a love of purple. From soft light lavender hues to deep rich violets – I love all shades of this color. So, when Pantone announced Ultra Violet (aka purple) as the color of 2018, I was thrilled. Realistically, I don’t know what these announcements actually mean to anyone. If you love a color – go for it…it’s your home! But since I’ve been on board the “ultra-violet” band wagon for several years now, I thought I’d round up some chic ways to incorporate this color into your home.

My home office (above) is painted in Benjamin Moore’s Lavender Ice. As was my previous home office below. If purple walls are too bold of a color statement for you, accessories are a great way to introduce color into even the most neutral rooms. See below for some beautiful purple home decor pieces.
