Colour trends: Ultra violet

Pantone has announced its Colour of the Year 2018. A dramatic, hypnotising and imaginative Ultra Violet.

Ultra Violet stands for experimentation and self-expression. It’s quite literally a bold colour but is surprisingly diverse. Here’s some of our favourite ways you can put Ultra Violet to good use.

Upcycle your furniture

Ultra Violet is the perfect colour to take tired old furniture and transform it into a statement piece. Got an old chair lying around that needs a revival? Or a side table that needs a fewer coffee stains?

Ultra Violet can breathe a new lease of life in to your furniture and save it from the scrap heap.

Revive the feature wall

As Ultra Violet is such a bold colour, it makes for a very vivid feature wall. Paired with a perfect white, it’s a strong contrast that’s eye-catching and clean.

Create a dreamy space theme

A purple as deep and vivid as Ultra Violet lends itself well to creating a space themed room. Combine with navy blues and splashes of gold stars for a kid’s bedroom that’s out of this world.

Refresh your kitchen

Sick of staring at those tired kitchen cabinets? A lack lustre kitchen is hardly an inspiring culinary environment, but with a splash of Ultra Violet the space can go from drab to fab in no time at all!

Choose a few cabinets to create an eye-catching focal point in your room or go bold and transform your kitchen into an Ultra Violet delight. Follow our handy guide to upcycling kitchen cabinets here.
