Color of the Year 2018: Ultra Violet

Pantone just revealed the color of the year for 2018, and imagine my excitement when I found out it was from a color family that I’m practically obsessed with—purples and violets!

According to, “purples and violets combine the calm stability of blue and the fierce energy of red.”

Purple and violet shades are often associated with royalty, nobility, luxury, power and ambition. It has a number of effects on the mind and body, like uplifting the spirits, calming your nerves, creating a feeling of spirituality, and encouraging imagination and creativity.


Almost everything I own is in the purple and violet range, so it was incredibly fun for me to put together some products available on Calyxta that have violet packaging, or come in violet or purple shades! Check them out!
