After tons of whispers and speculation, Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2018 has finally been named as Ultra Violet. This amazing rich shade of purple stems from the cosmic and celestial trend that is still going strong throughout the fashion and design worlds.
“Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own.” Pantone says. This bold, enchanting colour is also said to be a sort of homage to the late singer and pop icon, Prince and his iconic Purple Rain. We’ve put together some easy ways for you to hop on the bandwagon and get this magical, imaginative colour in your little one’s room!
