2018 is sure to be a vibrant year full of changes. Need proof? Take a look at the Pantone Color Institute’s official color of the year. Pantone, widely considered the world’s color expert for designers since 1963, named “Ultra Violet” the color that will define the next 12 months. The dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future. Make a lasting impression at your wedding or event by featuring the color that will be remembered for 2018.
Whereas recent years have seen trends of neutral colors and muted tones in event design, with an emphasis on creams, blushes, mauves, and greys, this year its time to shake things up with the bold and vivacious. Enigmatic purples have long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance, with icons Prince, David Bowie, and Jimi Hendrix bringing shades of Ultra Violet to the forefront of western pop culture as personal expressions of individuality. Nuanced and full of emotion, the depth of Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets.
We look forward to incorporating fresh perspectives into floral and linen design for 2018, making your event as vivid and eye-popping as you are.
