Every December, the authorities at the Pantone Color Institute release the highly anticipated Color of the Year, which is not only indicative of style trends to come, but also of the broader social and sociological climate, too. The Pantone Color of the Year for 2018 is Ultra-Violet, a deep, thoughtful purple that’s not too mauve nor too indigo.

The color is often associated with mindfulness practices, which offer a higher ground to those seeking refuge from today’s over-stimulated world.

“Historically, there has been a mystical or spiritual quality attached to Ultra Violet,” the color authorities stated in a press release. “The color is often associated with mindfulness practices, which offer a higher ground to those seeking refuge from today’s over-stimulated world. The use of purple-toned lighting in meditation spaces and other gathering places energizes the communities that gather there and inspire connection.”

Compound that with one of Well+Good’s top wellness trends of 2018—that all home decor will go woo-woo, beyond just a simple meditation nook—it’s clear that it’s time deck out your space with some Ultra-Violet home decor. “The Pantone Color of the Year has come to mean so much more than ‘what’s trending’ in the world of design; it’s truly a reflection of what’s needed in our world today,” said Laurie Pressman, VP of the Pantone Color Institute. So hey, if it’s something everyone needs, consider it all already purchased by me.
