Beautiful & Grown-Up Uses for Ultra Violet in your Home

The color experts at Pantone have chosen Ultra Violet as the 2018 Color of the Year. Trends are wonderful ways to keep your smaller design elements fresh and try new things you may discover you are in love with! Here’s what Pantone had to say about their choice of this dramatic color:

Picture of a quote from Leatrice Eiseman: We are living in a time that requires inventiveness and imagination. It is this kind of creative inspiration that is indigenous to PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet, a blue-based purple that takes our awareness to a higher level.

Creativity, imagination and inspiration are what interior design often is all about! Colors invoke a variety of feelings for different people, and we wanted to highlight fun ways to change out small items in order to make a big impact so you can try out Ultra Violet yourself this year. From small pillows to giant purple kitchens, there’s something for everyone!


Here are our favorite design uses of Ultra Violet for 2018!

Throw pillows make great accent items that are simple to swap out whenever you’d like. Some folks buy entire new pillows while others actually just change out pillow cases.

Wall art is a great way to have rotating options you can change out in mere minutes. Plus, if you’re even slightly crafty, some modern art isn’t too hard to make to go along with your new color theme.

Lighting can be a fun, creative way to add pops of color. Of course, there’s the obvious lampshades to swap out, but consider even some fun things like chandeliers!

Area rugs are a great way to to tie different color and texture elements together. If you’ve got a little purple on the walls, the pillows and the table, adding in a rug that combines colors from your those and the creamy white of your draperies could be exactly what you need to make it all go together beautifully!


Want more than just a touch of Ultra Violet?

This deep purple color isn’t for everyone, and frankly, we don’t encourage people to make larger or more expensive home design decisions off of passing trends…but if you’re a purple lover through-and-through, then maybe you’d love going all out, like some of these options!
