Welcoming ultraviolet into your homes

Welcoming ultraviolet into your homes

This year, Pantone has chosen a futuristic shade, ultraviolet, as the colour of 2018. The shade signifies originality, royalty and the cosmos. Infusing this colour into your interiors can be challenging. Hence, it needs to be used strategically around the house so that it stands out and makes the space uplifting. 

Ultraviolet is a colour that could be used as part of the furnishings. It can also be used on walls with some rustic wall decor items. One can also revamp their whole space by including this colour into various home decor items and accessories. You can also create a royal-themed space, use the colour paired with a little gold. Use the colour to design a cosmos-inspired bedroom. Use the shade wisely.

Here are some quick tips to help you incorporate the colour into your home decor:

Living room

The shade could be used as part of the furnishings. Having grey walls with a dining table whose chairs are ultraviolet will define the space. Also, using such a colour on one of the walls with some rustic wall decor items will make the whole area stand out.  


Ultraviolet colour will create a vibrant ambience in your bedroom. Creating a night sky with concealed LED lighting will make you think of the cosmos. This will give you the illusion of sleeping under a starry night. This concept is ideal for the children's bedroom, making it fun and magical.  


Having home decor items in this colour will help revamp the whole space. For example, cushion covers or rugs under the coffee table will give the whole space an elegant and royal look. Combining ultraviolet with golden accessories will also give your space a regal look. 

So, use the colour right and make your home bright!  Happy designing.
