Purple Rain | Pantone Has Announced Its 2018 Colour Of The Year

2018 is the year you get your creative on with Pantone announcing its 2018 colour of the year as Pantone 18-3838 Ultra Violet.

Chosen for its thoughtful purple hues designed to inspire creativity, our mates at Pantone hope this one will bring originality, along with ingenuity and visionary thinking (we’ll take all three thanks) in 2018.

This colour also acknowledges the power and mysteries that lie in the cosmos, think of it kind of like the sky’s the limit, and encourages all of us to look beyond our regular surroundings. The colour purple is also used in meditation and mindfulness practices, so here’s to one chilled out spin around the sun for all of us this year.

If nothing else, we’ll take the tribute to Prince as good enough reason to paint a feature wall in our humble abodes to channel some of those sweet, positive energy vibes.

Here's how to keep your indoor plants alive (you know, for your new feature wall).
