Designers Are Obsessed With Pantone’s Bold and Regal Color of the Year. Pantone has done it again: their 2018 color of the year is bold, beautiful, and nothing like the other color predictions we've seen for next year. The company says their pick, Ultra Violet 18-3838, is a "dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade" and "communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future" — and the design industry agrees.

"I like the magic, optimism, and fearlessness it invokes. At home, I’d use it to envelope yourself, royals style – how about a least a mohair throw, it's not quiet a velvet cape, but it'll do!" We bet a plush velvet bench will do the trick, as seen in this dining area.
