Now that spring is just around the corner, many of us will be thinking about how we can give our homes a quick and easy facelift for the coming of the warmer months.
So we are going to take a look at how one of the world’s top home decor gurus have recommended that we make sure that our bedrooms stay on-trend for spring/summer 2018.
Pantone always cause shockwaves when they declare their Colour of the Year. In 2017 the brand encouraged us to transform our homes with the lush shades of Greenery, but this year Pantone have suggested that Ultra Violet will be their colour of the year.
This bright and daring purple shade has been selected by the brand for its ‘individuality and spirituality’, and it will certainly add a burst of life to even the most humdrum of homes.
Although the choice of Ultra Violet was reportedly inspired by everything from galaxies to spiritual awakenings, it promises to affect the way that we live our daily lives in many surprising ways.
This follows on from the brand’s previous Colour of the Year nominations that have seen unusual hues like rose quartz, marsala, tangerine tango and blue iris being suggested as on-trend colours.
Pantone began their Colour of the Year campaigns in 2000, and it was an interesting way for the brand to make us think a little more creatively about the use of colour in our homes.
Whilst Pantone have long been known for their colour matching system, the Colour of the Year nominations have elevated the brand’s profile into something much more meaningful than merely helping us decide which colour to paint our bedroom walls with.
It’s always interesting to see how Pantone’s Colour of the Year choices infiltrate the mainstream. Their choice of the bold hue of Greenery last year might not have been hugely successful, but Pantone’s nomination of Rose Quartz in 2015 certainly had a massive impact in everything from our interiors to pop music videos. And we’ve already seen Bedstar’s Aspire’s range of beds includes a purple option for an on-trend look in our bedrooms.
So although it’s easy to be slightly dismissive of some of the more kooky language surrounding the announcement of Pantone’s Colour of the Year, it’s clear that their nomination of Ultra Violet is sure to affect the way we implement interior design into our homes throughout 2018.
