Pantone’s Purple Haze is understated and tranquilwith just a hint of edge. We love the way that demure colors, such as Ether and Misty Lilac, engage with Ultra Violet in an unexpected way, helping us to see the rich rendition of violet in a slightly softer light.

Designs in Purple Haze

Ultra Violet is a hue that leaves a bold impression, but next to muted hues like Lavender Violet and Deauville Mauve, we see a softer side. One way to pull off this palette is to go monochrome; another way is to pair Ultra Violet with organically-inspired hues like Weeping Willow and Tradewinds.

Furniture and accents are the perfect way to dip your toe into Purple Haze. To dial up the impact of the lighter hues in this palette, we’re favoring decor with perceivable texture. Below, you’ll find some products that incorporate colors from the Purple Haze palette.
