The Pantone colour of the year announcement is a massive event in every interior designer’s calendar. Since 2000 the institute has been releasing a colour for each year. 2017 saw the emergence of the fresh and natural Greenery. While 2016 had the dreamy pastel colour duo of Rose Quartz and Serenity.

The official colour for 2018 is Ultra Violet. The enigmatic colour is meant to reflect the current state of change and empowerment of the world.

Start your own revolution at home with Ultra Violet. Here are 3 ways you can decorate your space with the lustrous Ultra Violet colour of 2018:

1. Stand Out With A Bold Purple Feature Wall

Bold is one of the many ways to describe 2018’s colour of the year. Ultra Violet isn’t subtle. It’s meant to stand out. Making Ultra Violet the perfect colour for a daring feature wall.

For instance, you can have an eye-catching two-tone colour palette by combining Ultra Violet with neutral white walls. You can also stabilise the powerful purple by matching with pastel shades of the colour like lilacs, pale pinks and baby blue.

2. Enrich The Room With Purple

Go all out with Ultra Violet interior walls. The purple can be interpreted in different ways. On one spectrum, the purple colour resembles a dark gothic-romance setting. You can add the deep, moody tone of the purple to a study area or even the lounge and decorate with vintage furniture to match.

Ultra Violet is also supposed to represent exploration and has an almost ethereal, cosmic appearance. Revolutionise your space with contemporary bespoke furniture and add a futuristic touch to the mix wtith galactic Ultra Violet walls.

3. Accessorise With Purple

Want to go beyond your walls with Ultra Violet? You can also use the purple colour for your furniture and interior accessories. From your chaise lounge, book shelf or even subtler items like a throw or rug, purple highlights can be just as eye-catching as purple interior walls.

For a complete revamp of your space try juxtaposing your Ultra Violet furniture and accessories with neutral wall colours such as pale creams and greys. Take advantage of any colours that will attract attention to your purple items.
