From housewares to cars, each year sees different trends. The easiest trend for most consumers to spot is color. For example, last year, you might have noticed that everything from coffee mugs to eyewear appeared in a nature-inspired green hue. That’s because last year’s Color of the Year was PANTONE Greenery, which had an earthy feel and invoked a sense of a new beginning. This year, you might have already spotted a more purple-leaning color—this year’s trending color is PANTONE Ultra Violet. If you’d like to get some ideas about how you can bring this visionary color into your home décor, speak with a Blinds & Designs representative here in San Francisco today.
Is Ultra Violet for You?
Ultra Violet is a color of creativity, individuality, and the future. It offers strategic direction to where we’re going and opens the mind to what lies ahead. It’s even a little spiritual—long considered a mystical color, Ultra Violet will certainly make an appearance in communities that inspire connection, such as meditation spaces and other gathering places. That doesn’t mean it’s right for you, though—after all, it’s a bit unconventional. But don’t worry. Even if you don’t like this year’s color, wait a year, and a new one will be out. Remember trends are just that—passing fads!
Ultra Violet in a Room or Home
Ultra Violet leans more toward the blue end of the spectrum than red. While there are still enough red undertones to add passion, it is the touch of periwinkle that makes the cool prevail, lending itself to unique color combinations in fashion. Perfect for days or evenings, you will see Ultra Violet in everything from eyewear to sneakers. You can also find it in some Hunter Douglas window fashions, which have offered this shade for many years.
