Pantone announced its color of the year, and it’s Ultra Violet! Now, Ultra Violet may evoke images of bold bright color like the image below, but don’t let that deter you from the trend, if bold color isn’t your thing. Your use of color may vary greatly and depends on your personal preference.
In the next image, you can see the subtle nod to the Ultra Violet trend in the paint color. The otherwise neutral furnishings in this “vignette” tones down the violet.
In this final example, the use of purple is more deliberate, and the varying hues ranging from lavender to violet to deep plum help bring depth and dimension to the room. The darker plum euro pillow shams help to ground the space, and define this luxurious bed.
There are numerous ways to add Ultra Violet to your space. Whether it’s throw pillows or a soft throw blanket, art, accessories, cut flowers from the garden, lamps, or in an area rug, you can introduce the color as subtly or as boldly as you like. Don’t be afraid of color, sometimes it’s what a bland room is missing.
