If you're a fan of purple, then you'll love Pantone's color pick for 2018: Ultra Violet! Mysterious and creatively-stimulating, this bluish shade is perfect for studios, home offices, or even just in your bedroom. Paint an accent wall with this innovative hue, or work it into your aesthetic using a tufted ottoman or coffee table rug.

Daunted by decorating with such a vivacious shade? Start small; purple curtains on your windows liven up an otherwise neutral space. Think white walls and a cool gray sectional. Purple sheers can add a splash of color to offset those more low-key hues. Otherwise, try a purple rug under a grouping of furniture. Anchoring your couch and recliner, this playful color gives your living room instant personality. Pull that pigment out even more with purple book spines popping out here and there from a nearby bookcase.

Alternatively, you could wake up to an inspiring hue each and every morning by working Ultra Violet into the bedroom. Peruse a wealth of purple bedding sets for a comforter that serves as the focal point of the entire space. Go for a lovely shade of plum patterned with woven damask. For an added sense of opulence, tie in a metallic accent with a pair of silver sconces glittering on your headboard wall.

After a more modern vibe? Pick out a purple comforter set with pintuck details, and flank the bedside with some interesting lighting. A purple lamp crafted from handblown glass will temper your transitional aesthetic with a more classic look. Contemporary decorators, meanwhile, might prefer a light plum lamp with a handpainted, abstract design shade. Either way, task lighting that doubles as artwork will grant visual interest as well as a soft glow to read by at night!

How else can you incorporate this trendy new color into your decorating? You might try introducing it to the bathroom, where cool tones invite calm reflection. For example, you could hang up a purple shower curtain featuring a beautiful cascade of violet ombre. Let the color speak for itself against cerulean walls and a white tile floor. If a shower curtain is too much of a color commitment, invest in a purple bathroom rug or a set of cotton towels that you can switch out quickly, should you ever tire of the shade.

The decorating possibilities are endless with Pantone's Color of the Year for 2018. Toss a few purple throw pillows onto a black leather bench for an inky midnight look. Top a sofa table with a pair of ceramic candleholders in purple, or find a lovely vintage figurine garbed in this very hue. However you decide to decorate, let whimsical purple bring a splash of imaginative energy to your surroundings.
