The Pantone Color of the Year is inspired by the deep hue of the galaxy, and to bring home the magic of Ultra Violet, the Woman’s World Team suggests gorgeous products for your home
A blue-based purple, Ultra Violet is associated with the dark sky and stunning satellite pictures of the universe. In science experiments, ultraviolet light is used to make invisible ink visible to the naked eye. Pantone has declared it the colour of the year as it is symbolic of the sky, depicting limitless possibilities. The colour is not a common one and since we have been obsessed with pastels over the last few seasons, finding something in shades of Ultra Violet is almost impossible. But, worry not; we have done the hard work for you and found some amazing items you can use around your home.
