Have you heard? Pantone officially declared Ultra Violet the 2018 color of the year! What does this mean for furniture and interior design? Keep on reading for tips and tricks on how you can get inspired to change things up this year!
Pantone says Ultra Violet “communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future”. Sounds perfect to us! Even if you are someone who prefers a more neutral palette when it comes to your home, you too can be inspired and include splatters of the Ultra Violet color in and around your home.
New Year, New Statements
If you’re feeling a complete refresh is in order for the new year, you can opt for a statement wall in one of the rooms in your home. Although painting a single wall a standout color may seem strange, it is a common thing seen in many homes, hotels, and apartments because of the slight edge and crisp design it can provide a room.
If you find that painting a statement wall is a bit much, opt for changing out the small things! Add small knickknacks and decor to your mantle or coffee table. If you have plants around or outside your home, buy or paint the pot it is sitting in. You could even take your DIY skills to a lamp and paint the base or switch out the lampshade!
Update the Bedroom
Another simple idea to execute is switching up the theme in one of your home’s bedrooms! This doesn’t have to go as far as changing the wall colors or even the furniture – it can be as simple as changing out the bedspread and pillowcases. If you’re wanting to be a bit of an overachiever, take a paintbrush to the night table or dresser and revamp something old into something you’re excited about!
