Decorate your home with the Colour of the Year 2018

Pantone has always accustomed us to showy, eye-catching colors, “out of the box.” Living in a world painted by Pantone is everything except boring, where every day we are thrown into creativity and combining a colorful world with our daily routine.

Pantone surprised everyone and launched the colour of the year 2018: PANTONE 18-3838 UltraViolet. This dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.

In interior design, UltraViolet can transform a room into one of extraordinary self-expression, or conversely, its polish can tone down a room with subdued, modern pairings.

Adding spice and brightness, UltraViolet calls attention to a tufted couch, a piece of art, or accent wall.

As a color that can take you in so many directions, UltraViolet makes a statement in any space, whether it’s one of tradition and elegance or unexpected boldness.

We’ve rounded up our top shopping picks to whet your appetite for the new year’s favourite colour.

In the times when work from home has become a popular concept, it is imperative to create your own dedicated workspace at home. This is a rocky boat to be on, as there needs to be a fine balance between making the space work-ready and blending it in with the rest of the home decor.

A minimalistic room setting with functional furniture will facilitate productivity, while a dainty touch of ultraviolet on your chair can ensure that you feel at home in your own humble abode.
