Ultra Violet is the 2018 Pantone Color of the Year.

Since 2000, the Pantone Color Institute has crowned one color as its beacon of style for the year ahead. As a celebration of design trends, the annual announcement grants us home decor devotees an excuse to peruse exquisite shades of our favorite things. Whether it’s Cerulean, which earned the inaugural title, or Rose Quartz and Serenity, the two hues that shared the glory in 2016, we love scouring the marketplace for flea-market finds and designer goods furnished in these very colors. Last year, Greenery took home the honor, and this year, it’s Ultra Violet. On its website, Pantone describes this rich and royal choice as an option for creative visionaries: “Inventive and imaginative, Ultra Violet lights the way to what is yet to come.”

Keeping the Western interior style we all love in mind, we rounded up the prettiest home decor pieces taking their color cues from Pantone’s Ultra Violet this year.
