Adieu, "millennial pink" - A new year means introducing new colors to our palette. This year, it's lavender that has our full attention, and it hardly comes as a surprise with Pantone's announcement of "Ultra-Violet" as Color of the Year. According to their research, shades of purple spark creativity and inspires "visionary thinking." (And you know we're all about that.) Here are just a few ways you can integrate this soothing, mystical shade of lavender into your life...

1. With a relaxing soak in lavender "tub tea."

2. Or in a simple floral arrangement that reminds you to take a moment to smell the roses delphiniums.

3. As we celebrate a birthday, a change in season, or even a new arrival.

4. Or indulge in sweet confections you simply can't resist.

5. And it's true: sometimes matchy-matchy is a good thing.

6. As we freshen up our living spaces with fragrant sachets.

7. Come Easter time, we give in to these soft-hued beauties.

11. By indulging in aromatic delights to soothe, calm, and rejuvenate.

12. Or an ultra-moisturizing lavender lip balm.

14. And of course, we can't forget about taking it outside, where it all starts.
