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. "There’s a hint of fantasy in this color — something almost unreal and fabulist about it, after all, real ultra violet rays are beyond human comprehension – the naked eye can't see them!" says Editor in Chief of House Beautiful, Sophie Donelson. "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.
Dutch Boy's 2018 Color of the Year Is a Popular "Greige" Hue. Paint brand Dutch Boy just announced their 2018 Color of the Year and it's (drumroll, please) Sandstone Tint (441-2DB). This "greige" — a.k.a. a blend of gray and beige — is a departure from the bold hues we've seen from other predictions this past year. According to the company, it's "a hue that nods to the simplicity of the past, while also making a modern, color-confident statement that looks to the future." This shade is part of Dutch Boy's "Quest" palette, which features earth tones that are "as classic as they are sophisticated."
Stock Tank Tubs Are the Next Stock Tank Pool. The latest trend to take over Pinterest involves using the stock tanks designed to hold farm animals' food and water as a way to add a country touch to your bathroom. The concept is quite similar to clever stock tank pools, but more permanent, since they aren't drained and covered once the weather cools down. But trust us, you'll be happy to show off this creative take on a standalone tub all year long. Not only will house guests not be able to stop talking about their unique bathing experience, but these tanks are also affordable (they're only around $114 and $138 on Amazon). If you're convinced, there are a few ways to put your own spin on this trend. The galvanized surface (a.k.a. the protective coating of iron or steel that gives the tank it's color) is striking when paired with wood floors and exposed brick. This particular container also features unique grooves and indentions, which easily turns it into the focal point.
