Have you noticed that our current culture is very future-focused? We live in hope of the coming days ahead...imagining how ingenuity and social movements will change our world for the better. Stepping outside the moment to dream of what’s possible is powerful, and it’s at the heart of Pantone’s choice for Color of the Year 2018. By selecting Ultra Violet--a dramatic, blue-based purple--Pantone is speaking not only to the future of trend and design, but also to the future of our lives. What’s it saying? And how can we infuse the Color of the Year 2018 into our homes and lifestyles? Take a look…
In our digital world, it’s easy to get caught up in the constant flow of negativity around us. With the Color of the Year 2018, Pantone reminds us to focus on the good. Ultra Violet, and the whole family of purple hues, are ripe with positivity. Purple has long been known to uplift the spirit, calm the mind, and bolster the imagination...all the things that would make life better than ever before! So, let the Color of the Year 2018 inspire you to stay positive and enjoy more. Take time to watch the beauty of purple in a sunset. Add a few purple accents to your workspace to keep you calm and upbeat. Or, savor a home-spa experience with lavender-infused water.
Want to enjoy your home more too? Custom top down bottom up shades are exactly what you need. They’ll bring in mood-boosting natural light while blocking out the intense sunshine and glare that come with living here in Arizona.
Life in our country today is often synonymous with stress. But it doesn’t have to be. Pantone’s choice for Color of the Year 2018 encourages us to relax. Purples are associated with peace, calm, and mindfulness...the perfect recipe for less stress! Why not use Ultra Violet, or your favorite shade of purple, to bring relaxation into your home and your life? Try adding a bouquet of fresh purple flowers or a beautiful violet accent piece to your decor. And a little lavender oil will go a long way toward making your home your own personal oasis.
Want another way to reduce stress? Choose automation. Motorized shades and blinds adjust automatically to the perfect position--without even a thought from you.
Stay True to Yourself
Pantone’s Color of the Year 2018 is quite a stand-out color. Ultra Violet is a banner for individualism, and it emboldens us to be who we are. In general, purple is no stranger to the world of personal expression (think Prince, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie). So, let it inspire you to be yourself in every aspect of life. When it comes to home design, you can bring it in to create a stylish look that’s unique to you. Art, upholstery, and fabrics are incredible vehicles for showcasing purple--and your personality.
