I had someone ask me what Pantone was the other day. Pantone forecasts seasonal global color trends. It is actually taken very seriously by major corporations when deciding on goods manufactured, as well as color palates for design of commercial spaces. So… for 2018 the color is a blue based purple: ULTRA VIOLET.
With interior design, this can be a tricky color to work with, as it is very bold and strong. I probably would not recommend it for wall color. But it can be used sparingly as small pops, or you can find variations of this color that are a little more muted and have some grey. Below is a picture of how it could be used.
