Pantone's Color of the Year, as seen in DC homes

This image provided by the Pantone Color Institute shows the Pantone Color of the Year for 2018 called

For Pantone, it's swatch 18-3838, otherwise known as "Ultra Violet".

They even go as far as to say "Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future", so maybe that's why celebs like Reese Witherspoon, Carrie Underwood, and Viola Davis have already been spotted in it!

Pantone announces a new colour of the year every December, based on trend-forecasting research from the Pantone Color Institute.

Historically, there has been a mystical or spiritual quality attached to Ultra Violet.

The announcement will certainly please Prince fans, who favored the shade throughout his career.

"It's truly a reflection of what's needed in our world today", Laurie Pressman, vice president of the Pantone Color Institute, told The New York Times.

Purple slays because it has so many different tones and connotations.

"The selection of Ultra Violet speaks to our shared desire for deeper understanding in an increasingly complex landscape, and our eagerness to experiment to reach that level", said the company.

But we're all for colorful interiors, so here are a few ways to work Ultra Violet into your decor without it looking like your fifth-grade fantasy.

There are many ways to shop Ultra Violet for almost every aspect of your life. Think purple-toned pictures of stars scattered across the galaxy, the "vast and limitless night sky", the "mysteries of the cosmos", purple-lit meditation spaces. Pantone also notes that "enigmatic purples have also always been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance". The color was used by rock legends Prince, David Bowie and Jimi Hendrix.
