How to incorporate the 2018 Color of the Year into your new home décor

Pantone has officially crowned Ultra Violet as the 2018 Color of the Year, and it’s

certainly a bold choice! Here are some tips for integrating this fashion forward color

into your new home design!     

Set a tone. Colors can range from soft pastels to rich jewel tones to bright,

primary shades. The key to using color well is that it should flow, not be a

patchwork of conflicting tones. Before you choose something as bold as Ultra

Violet, decide how (or if) it meshes with your current color palette or

decorating scheme.

Don’t be afraid. If you really love a bold shade, go ahead and use it. Just

figure out how much of it you are comfortable with. What level of intensity

do you want? A whole room? One wall? An area rug, curtains or pillows?

Think smaller. Powder rooms are a great place to experiment with a bold

color like Ultra Violet. Create your own little jewel box of a room with

intensely hued walls or towels or other accessories.

Keep your home’s exterior quiet. Painting your home an attention-

grabbing color like purple could make you the neighborhood pariah. If you

really love this vibrant color, try painting your front door or incorporating it

in your pots and plantings.

Create balance. If you choose a provocative palette, remember to ground the

vibrant colors and balance them by adding a rich chocolate, black or peacock


Now that you have some expert decorating tips to incorporate into your new home,

it’s time to go Ultra Violet!
