Welcome Ultra Violet into your home

A new year is dawning, and with it, a bold and regal colour will reign supreme.

The 2018 Pantone Colour of the Year has been announced, and she’s no shrinking violet.

Ultra Violet is set to make a splash across film, television, design and fashion.

When it comes to interiors, Ultra Violet can appear as a subtle touch or a serious statement. Historically, the purple family represents power, royalty and wealth. It is a complex and contemplative colour, known to foster imagination and originality.

Here we take you through just some of the ways you can bring this colour to your home.

Living Rooms

For the bold, Ultra Violet can dominate a colour scheme room. This shade of luxury and ‘wow-factor’ can star on walls and floors, as well as furniture and curtains or blinds. The result shows self-assurance and suggests creative expression.

Show your sofa-istication, by creating a focal point with a sofa or armchair. It is also a great way to dip your toes into the edgy Ultra Violet pool. A purple couch is bold and inviting, which is just what you want in your living room. Bear in mind, you don’t have to go big to get the look – just one piece of furniture can set the room off and re-energise an entire space.

Ultra Violet is a statement, but it’s surprisingly easy to pair with other tones, like whites, greys, woods and neutrals which may already be present in your home. Another bonus of this trendsetter, is that dark fabrics don’t show wear and tear as easily as lighter shades – winner.

Feature Walls

For the committed amongst us, renew a room and indulge in an artistic renaissance with an Ultra Violet tin of paint or two. Painting an entire wall the one colour (including shelves and even furniture resting on it) makes a bold and stylish statement. However, a feature wall or even a ceiling coat is another good way to stand out.

Ultra Violet is a moody colour, it’s deep and bold and may make some interior decorators flinch in fear at first.  But shelve that anxiety, it can be brought in with baby steps, adding stylistic punch with little cost and effort. It may be a splash of colour in a vase, some bright throw pillows or a blanket, some new lamps or even kitchenware – experimenting with colour and freshening your abode needn’t be a time consuming or costly task.
