The Tuesday Twist: 9 January

Happy New Year!

It's a brand new year and the Urban Twist studio is bursting with fresh ideas to add to our wide range of products! If you don't already, be sure to follow us on social media and sign up for our bi-monthly newsletter to be the first to hear about promotions, new products and current trends!

Pantone's Colour of the Year...Ultra Violet

Just what exactly is PANTONE Colour of the Year?

Every year since 2000, the Pantone Color Institute selects a particular colour to be 'Colour of the Year.' This symbolic selection serves to represent the mood and attitude of what is taking place in our global culture. 

Described as a 'provocative and thoughtful purple shade', Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future. 

Pantone has also thoughtfully created 8 color palettes to help you incorporate and pair this year's special shade, Ultra Violet! Throughout the year we will explore each palette and how the hues can cross-over into home decor, wedding accessories and other design trends. This week we look at....


Sitting side by side on the color wheel, Pantone describes these shades as 'like-minded hues...their spirited good humor and playful exuberance makes for easy and engaging color mixes.”

We think that this colour palette embraces the beautiful watercolour effect of hydrangea flowers!

These shades would be stunning for a spring wedding, especially when paired with our range of Personalised Wedding Name Place Cards in the colours of fuchsia, amethyst and purple!

 New Year, New You!

Trying to keep those New Year's resolutions can often be a tough endeavor. As the year roles on, the 'new year, new you' vendetta often starts to fizzle. This year, try focusing on resolutions that are not only logistically achievable but ones you will actually enjoy carrying out! To help you stay on course, detail the steps involved and your progress along the way.

Our Wooden Engraved Notebooks are the perfect place to keep track of your success! These A5 oak notebooks featuring a 'living hinge' spine come in a range of designs and colours and can be easily refilled with our lined or unlined paper pad inserts!

We particularly love our wooden notebooks with the lilac paper pad insert that captures a variation of the Ultra Violet trend!

 A Feast Fit for Dad

Perhaps rather than (or in addition to) a tangible gift this year, why not cook Dad a sumptuous feast? Like the old saying goes, 'A way to a man's heart is through his stomach!' So naturally, a day devoted to 'all things dad' can only be complete with a glorious meal! This time bacon has served as the inspiration and we have searched high and low for our absolute favourite recipes. 

Dad's mouth is sure to water at the sight of these Bacon, Pineapple and Chicken Kebabs

These sweet and savory Maple Syrup Buttercream & Bacon Cupcakes courtesy of Wilton are perfect for Father’s Day!

And because we love bacon so much, this Smoky Whiskey Mule courtesy of Chili Pepper Madness is packed full of Jack Daniels, candied bacon, and chili pepper!


Your friends at Urban Twist wish everyone a safe and joyful Father's Day!
