Color is so important that paint companies release a Color of the Year each year to help inform home buyers determine what will be trendy in the year ahead, while also offering a multitude of ideas on how to incorporate the color into your home.

Color of the Year
The Pantone Color Institute, which designates itself the “global color authority” has been choosing a color of the year since 2000. According to the color experts at Pantone, Ultra Violet is 2018’s Color of the Year. “We wanted to bring something to the table that inspired hope and had an uplifting message,” stated Executive Director, Leatrice Eiseman.

Decorating Ideas
Here are some ideas of how to incorporate the 2018’s Color of the Year:

Bring Life to Your Favorite Space
Think of the gathering space in your home. Is it your Family Room or Kitchen?
It should be warm, inviting and where everyone wants to be. Get dramatic by painting an accent wall and since you might already be outside your comfort zone and pair this pretty hue with another fun color. Change up a couch or bar stools with one of the new colors in the palette. The results of these dynamic shades are bold, vibrant and far from basic.

Not ready to totally take the plunge? Just dip your toes in with this exciting color by adding a blanket or throw, switching up your pillows, or some new accessories. Or, paint the inside of a chest, pantry or cabinet. You don’t have to go big to get the look. 

Kitchen / Dining Room
A simple way to getting started using this bold new color palette is to use it on a table in your dining room or kitchen. Bring in affordable napkins, placemats, runners and/or glassware to set your colorful table.

Polish a Room
Select an item in your room such as a rug with the new colors and watch it transform the space immediately.
