When Pantone announced Ultra Violet as 2018’s Color of the Year, it quickly became apparent that this deep-purple hue is to the color wheel what Scorpio is to astrology: downright divisive. While some feel that Pantone’s selection is unflattering and tricky to style, others are commending the company for embracing a shade that has long been symbolic of “counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance” in severely troubled times.
Regardless of where you stand on the debate, Ultra Violet is surprisingly compatible with the likes of lime green, burnt orange, charcoal gray, and pale lavender, making it the perfect color for an accessory – be it for your home or your wardrobe. After scouring some of your favorite retailers and e-tailers, Savoir Flair has curated a shoppable edit of accents ranging from oh-so-subtle to unapologetically bold in case you’re looking to incorporate 2018’s go-to color into one of the rooms of your home. Reluctant to commit? The price tags will help.
