The news came this morning: Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2018 is Ultra Violet, a color that is nothing if not enthusiastic. If you’re anything like us, you may find yourself scratching your head as to how you could possibly incorporate this color into your home. I think the key, if you decide to go that route, is moderation. We’ve rounded up a few accessories in this bold purple, to add just a touch of ultra violet to your home. Any one of these is sure to take a neutral-toned room to the next level.
Tinted Highball Glass – Set of 4 at Urban Outfitters, $15

Acapulco Chair at Domino, $338.49

Small Ghost Buster Night Table at Y Living, $455
I’ve long admired Kartell’s line of plastic homewares, which manage to be simultaneously playful and sophisticated. This little nightstand is a beautiful way to incorporate a dash of shocking purple.

Pink and purple are really a striking color combination, and here’s a way to bring them together that’s not princessy at all.

Heritage Lidded Small Vessel at Anna New York, $195
As someone who’s a little obsessed with rocks, I couldn’t help noticing that this year’s Pantone color pick is quite similar to the color of amethyst. Indulge in this elegant container, or buy a little chunk of amethyst to keep around the house.

Add a brilliant pop of color to your bedroom with this textured blanket.
Persian Cat Cushion at Domino, $29.99

The Low Backed French Style Sofa at Talisman London, £5,900.00
This is by far the most expensive item in this roundup, and by far my favorite. My career as a writer has not yet made me rich enough to afford a six thousand dollar sofa—but a girl can dream.
