'A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.

 Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own.

Enigmatic purples have also long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance. Musical icons Prince, David Bowie, and Jimi Hendrix brought shades of Ultra Violet to the forefront of western pop culture as personal expressions of individuality. Nuanced and full of emotion, the depth of PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets.

Historically, there has been a mystical or spiritual quality attached to Ultra Violet. The color is often associated with mindfulness practices, which offer a higher ground to those seeking refuge from today’s over-stimulated world. The use of purple-toned lighting in meditation spaces and other gathering places energizes the communities that gather there and inspire connection.'

These are the words on the Pantone website

Purple is a colour associated with spirituality, that uplifts and calms the mind. It is a colour that is connected with creativity and is just a fun colour. It's also a colour associated with prestige, nobility and royalty. Purple is a statement colour, whether it's favourite colour or if its part of your personal preference colour scheme.

Purple is an colour that most people will only use for a girls bedroom. But that limits the potential it has in Interior design and decorating. Don't believe me? Just look at Pinterest. A purple feature wall seems to be a favourite. Purple bathrooms, purple living rooms and even purple dining rooms.

Most designers pair it with white but purple really is much more versatile than that. On the colour wheel yellow is the complimentary opposite to purple and looks fabulous as an accent colour. Orange and warm Autumn colours work really well too.
