So we're over here scratching our heads because we've been designing our little hearts out and just realized that we haven't been using Panetone's Color of the Year. What do you think that means?
For the last couple of years the hot color was millennial pink. It's subtle and mature and perfect for an adult but also works great in a little girl's room. It's a very versatile color for what it is and we really love it. Pantone's pick was Greenery for 2017-- a bright green that felt very modern. It worked for certain applications but definitely wasn't our go-to color.
This year, however, the pick is Ultra Violet- an intense, grape-crayon purple. What?! We don't mind a subtle lavender or even a grey-ish purple like this:
...but a bright, in-your-face purple called Ultra Violet is a little confusing for us. We'd even say that we don't mind a little bit of this purple mixed in the right pattern with some other calm colors to balance it out, but we're not quite ready for an entire room of it.
What are your thoughts?
Have you been seeing a lot of purple furniture in stores and wondered why? Here's your explanation! Hopefully the 2019 color is a little more useable. For now, we'll stick with Millennial Pink and by pass Ultra Violet.
