Ultra Violet is Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2018

Ultra Violet is Pantone's Color of the Year 2018. Color combination ideas using Ultra Violet by Erika Firm.Y’all. #Designerproblems. Big time. Pantone might legitimately be trying to kill me with their 2018 Color of the Year pick: Ultra Violet.

I had a feeling it might be a purple (see my previous post), but I was hoping for Pink Lavender or Almost Mauve if they went with a dreaded violet hue. But I do have a year to try to get used to it.

I’ve compiled some color combinations using Ultra Violet that don’t make my eyes bleed, using Pantone’s Spring Trend colors for 2018. Hopefully you’ll spot some color combos using Ultra Violet that you can use for inspiration.

What do you think of the 2018 Pantone Color of the Year?

    Hey Erika – I’m in love with your florals at the top of this inspiration board. Is there any way for me to purchase it digitally for use for a display cake? 🙂

      Hi Justina, Thanks so much! I don’t have that exact floral for sale (yet) but I do have others in my Creative Market shop. Take a peek here — you might like my “Golden Plum Florals” for your cake. https://creativemarket.com/erikafirm
