Pantone Colour of the Year 2018

Pantone_Snipped_2017_0So! The colour of 2018 has been announced. It’s been a while since I’ve got really into the CoTY – in fact the last time I really paid close attention was 2012, with ‘Tangerine Tango’. In a fit of fashionable-ness, I colour matched some paint and painted my kitchen. Looking back, I’m not sure it was the best decision I’ve ever made. (On a side note, I do miss my old flat. It was perfect and bright and brilliant).

Here we are, hurtling towards the end of 2017, and the release of next year’s colour has got me thinking about plans. My flat is fairly static, and it’ll be a cold day in hell before I paint my walls anything that isn’t grey, so I’ll be looking at other outlets for colour. I’d love an excuse to pick up an amethyst geode to sit alongside my rose quartz and my smudge sticks, so that’ll probably be my starting point. The other element that will probably see more than a little purple is my hair. Silver grey though it is, it often ends up with a lilac hue, so a little more intention here could make my head the most consistent canvas for displaying 18-3838.

I wonder if there are hair dye manufacturers that subscribe to the PMS? 🙂  There’s a hipster market there…
