After a long winter and warmer temperatures around the corner, it’s time to freshen up not just your look! Just like a new spring dress will do wonders for your personal style (and your mood), sprucing up a space in your home can have the same effect. The 2018 Pantone colour of the year, Ultra Violet, is perfect for giving your home that much-needed spring refresh!
Pantone describes Ultra Violet as a “provocative and thoughtful purple shade” that embodies individuality and spirituality. According to the company, it alludes to the mysteries of the cosmos and the unknown.
So, now it’s time for us to put on our designer-hat and find all of the ways we can incorporate Ultra Violet into our homes this season! Below are our top 5 ways to incorporate this year's bold and energetic hue.
Creating a comfy and stylish interior is simple when you have throw pillows at your service. Not only is this an easy way to incorporate the colour of the year into your home, but it’s also a great way to add personality to any room. From bedrooms to living rooms and outdoor spaces, no space is complete without this finishing touch.
Art comes in many different shapes and forms. If you’re feeling bored with your space and need a change, switching up your artwork can be an easy way to bring in a new perspective. Different artwork will highlight elements in your space and can help to make your room feel fresh and revived. From prints to paintings, incorporating new artwork into your home can be a cost effective way to refresh your space without committing to more permanent changes like paint or furniture.
Gone are the days when linens had to be stark white. Showcase your personality by adding a pop of colour at your next dinner party with 2018's hottest colour! An Ultra Violet table linen will brighten up any room creating a beautiful focal point when hosting a party. If a table linen is too large of a statement, we recommend incorporating it by way of napkins!
Arguably our favourite way to infuse Ultra Violet into your home is through accessories. Minimalistic and straightforward accessories can range from coasters to rugs and everything in between. Accessories done right will draw the eye in and infuse a room with personality!
Flowers are versatile, beautiful, and not to mention they bring a fresh new scent to each room! If you can’t commit to permanently using Ultra Violet in your home, this is a perfect way to introduce the colour into your home slowly. Who knows, you may fall in love with the colour so much you’ll being transitioning the colour into your home in more ways!
