Purple Power – Panatone’s Polished Choice for the Color of 2018

Each year, the connoisseurs of color at Panatone make a new hue the color of the year. For 2018, a shade of purple – Ultra Violet, to be exact – has been chosen for the distinction.

Purple has a long history of being associated with wealth, royalty, and a distinguished status. At the same time, this color can be a fresh pop that adds dimension and makes a bold statement.

We expect to see shades of purple – and maybe even Ultra Violet – making an elegant entrance into interior design schemes in the coming year.

Here are some of the top ways we envision more purple power in a home near you.

In the Bedroom

Opting for a purple palette is a great way to breathe new life into your bedroom. As mentioned in the outset, purple has long been associated with wealth and royalty, so this color exudes elegance and can make your most personal of spaces feel luxurious.

It adds a distinguished feel without being overly feminine, making it a nice color compromise for a couple’s master suite.

Purple in the bedroom pairs nicely with ivory and gold for a traditional feel. Or, choose a blue-based hue of purple (like Ultra Violet, the color of the year) and pair it with periwinkle or cornflower blue for a lighter version of the color scheme.

Consider adding seating in a rich, textured velvet saturated in a shade of deep berry purple. Accent pillows in purple are also a good way to incorporate the royal hue.

In the Bathroom

The color of the year can transcend to the powder room. Purple can be an unexpected surprise in a room typically dominated by neutrals or shades of blue and green.

But the bathroom is often an overlooked opportunity to have a little fun with your home’s interior design. Push a little purple power into your powder room with wall treatments featuring the 2018 color of the year.

Or, for a smaller commitment, choose towels in a shade of purple that coordinates with your existing design theme in the bathroom. Ultra Violet stars great alongside neutral grey tones or sandy beiges.

In the Great Room

To make the color of the year the star of your home, give it center stage in your living space. Or a supporting role is ok, too. The color can be surprisingly neutral and really add a unique twist to your entertaining space. Purple can also serve as a nice counterbalance to fresh, modern color choices like tangerine and cobalt.

In a space as large as a living room or great room, it’s easier to get a little more dramatic with the color. Add drama to windows by picking draperies with a punch of plum. In smaller rooms, this could close in the space – but not so in a great room.

Polish Your Brevard Home with a Pop of Purple

Is your home in need of a little polish for 2018? A touch of purple can be the perfect way to give your space a fresh feel.

Whether you choose to use the color of the year in your bedroom, bathroom, living space, or in some other spot, you’ll notice the way that this hue adds distinction and drama. For more great ideas, check out our ideabook on Houzz.
