Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2018 has landed! An electrifying shade of Ultra Violet that’s sending shockwaves through the world of interiors.
Our resident decor expert Lorna McAleer is on hand to explore the thinking behind Pantone’s vibrant colour selection, along with her ideas for how to style the shade we’ll all be decorating our homes with next year.
“Ultra Violet represents a striking and exciting change” says Lorna. “Where Greenery, Pantone’s top pick for 2017, was bright and bold it connected to the natural/botanical influences that have been so dominant. Ultra Violet is vibrant and futuristic; it feels like it originates from a high-tech environment. It’s certainly going to liven up homes this year.”
Ultra Violet Windows
“The cool undertones of Ultra Violet work really well with grey, which is great news for many UK homeowners; it’s such a popular colour that most homes will already be prepped for a quick and easy Ultra Violet update – simply add a gorgeous window blind to bring your room to life!
“Our Polaris vertical and roller blind fabric in ‘Violet’ is a perfect match.
Vertical blinds allow sunshine to stream through, which makes Ultra Violet dazzle at the windows keep furniture and accessories clean and contemporary for a futuristic feel.
Alternatively, clash contemporary and traditional style by adding a sleek Ultra Violet roller blind to a bathroom with vintage roll top bath and wood-panelling.”
