Grab Your Purple Pants

It's official...Pantone announced Ultra Violet as the color for 2018.  

I wish I had a picture of my pink and purple Huffy 10-speed from back in the 80s.  I used to cruise through my neighborhood for hours, with the wind in my wild hair, looking stylish with my ride.  I was ahead of the times pedaling the streets with my purple bike.

With that said...I don't know about you, but other than a cardigan sweater and some plaid pjs, I don't have much from the purple family in my wardrobe or home design.  Maybe it's time I break out of my shell and incorporate a bit of this deep hue into my lifestyle.

I thought I would dedicate this post to all things purple and share a few of my "Color of the Year" finds.  Click on each item to learn more about it.

First, let's look at a few fashion pieces.  If you're a little hesitant to jump on the purple bus, start with adding just a pop of color to your outfit.  A little goes a long way.

The same goes for home decor.  There's no need to rush out and buy new furniture or start repainting rooms to match Pantone 18-3838TCX.  Grab a few statement pieces to style and you'll be all set.

I'm excited to see what designers come out with over the next few months incorporating this color palette.  Until then, dust off your Prince cassettes and listen to a little Purple Rain in memory of the man who loved the color so much he wrote a song about it.
