Pantone, keepers of all things color, recently announced their 2018 pick for Color of the Year, and it's a doozy: Ultra Violet, a rich, daring, offbeat purple that calls to mind the cosmos and definitely looks ahead to the future. We here at Adrian Durban Florist believe a color with this much drama looks especially great when introduced into the home in winter, and at the turn of the year, no less. It's a great opportunity to update your home's look, and even if purple may feel like an unorthodox choice at first, you'll quickly become accustomed to this jewel-toned hue.

We all know a fresh grouping of blooms has the power to cheer anyone up, sick or well. But given the fact that flowers oxygenate a room and lift the spirits, we here at Adrian Durban Florist think giving them to someone who is sick is a no-brainer.
