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.
Pajama Lounges Are Taking Over Houses Everywhere and We Love It. Pajama lounges are having a serious moment and they're the dreamiest home trend of all time — there, we said it. If you haven't heard of a space like this before, it's essentially an upstairs living room that's very private and the perfect place to gather as a family after rolling out of bed in your (you guessed it) pajamas. This concept is part of a growing trend of living spaces moving upstairs, where it's more secluded. "They're designed to be a place where the family can gather and hang out away from the high-traffic areas of the home," Paul Fischman, principal designer at Choeff Levy Fischman in Miami, told Realtor.com. Still can't picture what we're talking about? This Massachusetts room, designed by Frank Roop, is one strikingly gorgeous example of a pajama lounge.
