Home Decorating With Ultra Violet, Pantone's Colour of the Year 2018

Judging by Pantone's pick for Colour of the Year, 2018 is looking to be the year for bold and brave choices. If you are looking for ways to liven up your home, Ultra Violet is a dramatic option to update corners of your abode.

Here’s how you can add a dash of elegance and a sprinkle of luxury in your home this year:


1. Introduce it in your accent pieces.

If you are afraid of a total transformation and you don’t fancy going all out, you may introduce Ultra Violet in your accent pieces. Try adding deep purple pillows, blankets, or rugs to make the living room or bedroom more inviting.


2. Let your lighting fixture stand out.

This year’s colour is versatile, you can even use it for your lighting fixtures. Park a purple lamp in your living room or study to inject a bit of vibrancy in your interiors.


3. Jazz up your walls.

The sultry shade of Ultra Violet can add drama to your space. You need not paint the entire wall as you may opt to install a wallpaper for a softer look.


4. Pair it up!

If Ultra Violet is too bold for you, look for other shades that you can pair it with. This hue works well with softer shades such as pink and blue, or anything that is in the same colour family such as lilac, blush, and mauve. This adds a sudden twist to the colour to make it more homey and cosy.


5. Mix it up with deep shades.

If your battlecry this year is a #Bolder2018, you may pair Ultra Violet with dark, bold colours such as black and red. Think leather sofa, velvet cushions, and dark-coloured wooden furniture that makes the colour super saturated and dramatic, and your space more elegant and luxurious.


6. Frame it well.

If you have old frames at home and you’re thinking of repurposing it, you may paint them with Ultra Violet to create a gallery wall. This adds life and a pop of colour to your bare wall. Plus, you can save more money by reusing old stuff!


7. Wake up in luxury.

Another way to incorporate Ultra Violet in your home is to use it in the very sheets you sleep in. Its rich, vibrant colour works well with white linens. Update your safe haven with Ultra Violet beddings, which looks stunning even in dim light.


8. Go bold with your furniture.

Ultra Violet is super classy when used in furniture. You may repaint your old dining chairs with Ultra Violet or create a focal point in your living room by adding a purple couch.


9. Go for glamorous blinds.

This year, transform your home in an instant by hanging Ultra Violet-coloured curtains. Not only will curtains help homeowners save energy at home, its eye-catching and uplifting shade also complements the neutral tones of your room.
