Purple Reflections

THE HUE GURUS at Pantone have declared purple (or the much fancier-sounding ultra violet) the color of the year for 2018.  I have been puzzled by their picks before, but purple?  Pantone’s explanation: “Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.”

For me, the color calls to mind fanciful cows, the favorite color of my favorite six-year-old and the sadly departed musician Prince. But I would prefer not to see a world populated by purple couches, mauve-colored walls or deep purple Kitchen-Aids, not to mention anyone dressed in head-to-toe violet.

Be advised: A little purple goes a long way. We like it best as an accent color, not the main dish. See the photos above for suggestions on how to incorporate it into your closet.
