When Pantone announced its 2018 Color of the Year, designers, florists and other creatives took note. Their intriguing choice, Ultra Violet, is meant to reflect the spirit of the times as well as the year ahead. And while this rich, dark purple may be a shade you haven’t ever thought you’d work into your decor, it’s time to think again, or so we think here at Kitty’s Flowers. Winter is the perfect time for an update to your decor scheme, or for a refresh of specific spaces. Pantone’s purple may be just the color you need to achieve both.
But before you go painting an accent wall or scooping up all of those Ultra Violet throw pillows, start small. The purple palette looks amazing when it’s reflected in flowers, which don’t require the same commitment level to this unique color as a more serious decor change would. Instead, you can just enjoy bringing another side of the color wheel into your home. Our Purple Passion exemplifies just how magnetic purple can be.
Purple – violet in particular – can be a deep, arresting jewel-tone, so it’s smart to balance that richness with something bold and bright like red. Decorate with purple and you’ll see how majestic, mysterious and complex it is, as well as how beautifully modern it feels.
