Introducing the 2018 Pantone Color of the Year! ~ Ultra Violet

I love when the Pantone color of the year is introduced and my style feeds start to fill up with inspiring uses of the new trend setting colors!

This years Pantone Color of the Year is Ultra- Violet and I am loving it!

Color of the Year

This color could be viewed as a seemingly difficult color to introduce but it’s actually really fun and easy! You can go for the gusto and introduce it as a primary wall or accent wall color.  I utilized a very similar color when redecorating a medical office that I worked for at one time. Needless to say it met some skepticism until it was on the wall, and wow what an impact. This color has a soothing effect, and has an unexpected appeal.

Ultra Violet Wall

Not sure about painting an entire room purple? No problem! Try adding accent pieces, a vase, a chair, maybe just a picture frame. You’ll be amazed!

Ultra Violet Furniture

Is you’re interior not ready for a splash of color try your garden! Ultra-violet is a prevalent floral color! Go for a classic Nikko Blue Hydrangea, or purple campanula in your perennial gardens and purple verbena, and night sky petunias in your patio pots and hanging baskets!

There are a ton of ways to make this year’s Ultra-violet influence part of your indoor and outdoor decor. How will you use it?

Let’s Talk About Something Pinteresting

Did you ever sit back and look at your Pinterest boards and wonder if this is a true reflection of you as a person…your likes, loves, and humor all on display. 

I hadn’t really thought much about it to be honest until I started this new blog adventure. Then I suddenly realized that Pinterest is not just mindless entertainment while I wait at the doctors office, or in a few quiet moments on the sofa at the end of the night. It really is a pretty good depiction of me as a person when I step back and look at it as a big picture…

Here’s me in Pinterest form…I’m a well dressed middle aged woman, who likes fine jewelry…and I would be considered a bit of an old soul.


I love cooking and baking…and apparently drinking as I have 184 pins on just cocktails!

My home is a mix of mid century modern furniture and vintage reclaimed touches…I’m hyper focus on wall treatments, Yup! A whole category just for the walls…


I’m focused on my business even in my personal time as I set up a “garden center” board too! And, yes the business has it’s own Pinterest page…this is just over kill lol 😄

I couldn’t get away with out a page for parties and entertaining a favorite hobby of mine for sure!


And to top it all off a healthy dose of sarcastic humor! 

It’s pretty entertaining to sit back and evaluate your life based on your social media activity! Give it a try and see what Pinterest has to say about you! And if you wanna know more about me follow me on Pinterest! Links below!!
