If you tend to decorate your home or workspace in line with Pantone's Colour Of The Year every 12 months, then it's time to redecorate!

Pantone has released its Colour Of The Year for 2018 which will no doubt appear in makeup, home decor and fashion trends all over the world within the next few months.

Last year, Pantone announced that a fresh green simply called Greenery, was their Colour Of The Year for 2017, which led a lot of people to surround themselves with beautiful and plants.

Before that, in 2016, they announced that Rose Quartz, a mix of baby pink and lavender purple, would be the trending colour and funnily enough, those colours appeared in a variety of homes as stand out decor items, like vases.

Now, the 2018 colour has been revealed and while it took most of us by surprised, we can understand why they went with it.



Yes, the 2018 Colour Of the Year is Ultra-Violet, a colour that looks like a galaxy but also reminds you of Cadbury chocolate and makes you want to go and buy a block asap!

Pantone said on their Instagram that the colour is "a dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade" that "communicates originality, ingenuity and visionary thinking that points us to the future".

The colour purple has meant a lot of things to a lot of people for thousands of years.

According to Bourn Creative, the colour "is often associated with royalty, nobility, luxury, power, and ambition" with the latter being extremely relevant in the world's current political climate.

This colour is provocative, as Pantone explained, and ambitious which reflects the ambitions of those who got involved in the Women's Marches at the beginning of the year and, from amore local standpoint, reflects the ambitions of the 'YES' campaigners who fought so hard to make same-sex marriage a reality in Australia.
