It’s official! Ultra Violet, Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2018, is set to be a popular color this year. From kitchenware to furniture, the blue-based purple is already making a bold statement across the world of design. But don’t go painting your entire room purple, there’s plenty of other ways to bring the shade into your interiors. There are no strict rules to incorporating the vibrant shade, but we believe balance is always key. In this guide, we show you four clever ways to style your home with Ultra Violet.
Let Ultra Violet Take Center Stage
Perfect for rooms with a neutral palette, an Ultra Violet sofa adds depth and texture.
If you’re experimenting with color, cool tones work best to bring vibrancy into your space. Spice up a white and wooden living room with an Ultra Violet sofa and watch the room take up a mid-century modern look. Throw in soft pink and blue pillows to add to the laid-back vibe, and display colorful panels so you can color-block without having to commit to a permanent paint job.
There’s room for Ultra Violet home design in bohemian spaces too. For homes with tribal prints and intricate gold-framed mirrors, a low-height fabric sofa in Ultra Violet adds just the right amount of drama and brings an air of mystery to the space.
Complement the Hue with Blue
Invite calm into the room with a powerful combination of Ultra Violet and blue.
Aiming to offer a higher ground where people can seek refuge, Ultra Violet is all about embracing peace and relaxation amidst a busy world. Whether it’s a blue sofa or a blue flower vase, pairing it with a cushion or a table lamp in the rich shade of Ultra Violet can have soothing effects. Doesn’t this room just remind you of the sky before dawn?
We don’t advise you to invest in an Ultra Violet fitted carpet, but we’re giving you the go signal on an Ultra Violet area rug. Whether in plain or patterned, an Ultra Violet rug brings a point of interest into the space and ties the different elements of the living room together.
Make It Pop
Forget about going big and bold, just add an Ultra Violet accent.
The dining room is a great place to mix and match textures, from sleek metal surfaces to warm wooden chairs. But you can go the extra mile by adding various colors to the space. Save yourself the trouble of getting new chairs by simply adding an Ultra Violet seat pad for that that pop of color.
Give It the Royal Treatment
You can never go wrong with velvet decor, especially in the royal shade of purple.
If you’ve always wanted to upgrade your bedroom, now is your chance. Give your room a luxe makeover with a tufted velvet headboard in Ultra Violet. There’s no doubt you’ll sleep like a king (or queen!) for the rest of the year.
