Colour of 2018 : Decor Ideas
treniqblog | December 28, 2017

Pantone has announced the colour of the year 2018 and sent the world on a slight tizzy. From a refreshing green of 2017 to a rather dramatic ultra violet in 2018, the change has been a rather stunning one. Pantone describes the ultra violet as a provocative and a thoughtful shade of purple. The shade is a perfect midway between dark and light such that it is subtly eye popping while being flamboyantly classy all at the same time. The shade is an allegory of a more spiritual, mysterious and enigmatic state of mind. The colour has been dubbed the colour of the progressive future, of development and individuality.

The colour is great for the interiors and furnishing segment too. Ultra violet is a classy and regal shade to bring home and Treniq is excited to see how this hue finds its way into decor ideas.

While we have deciphered the intrinsic qualities of the colour, the big question is who can relate to the colour most? Who is going to bring this colour home in 2018 and at what varying grades? We have put together a small guide on how you can incorporate ultra violet in your decor based on your personality.

The Bold Rule Breaker

 

Ultra Violet is for the daring and the confident independent person. It’s for those people who can pick out one bold shade and blend it with another to create a dramatic colour block. Ultra violet pairs brilliantly with solid bold colours making the whole combination look dramatic yet appealing. The colour is the right amount of moody to create a stunning colour block.

Pairing Ideas

 

The ultra violet of the season pairs very well with dark bold colours such as yellow, orange, green, olive, fuchsia and so on. Care needs to be taken to include elements in neutral shades just to mellow down the effect of the two rather contrasting and powerful colours. When mixed in right proportions these colours can outdo a room. The colour pairs really well with bold stripes and geometric prints on neutral shades and also with floral prints on bold counterpart shades.

A wall done in ultra violet is a great way to bring the colour home for the rebellious trend setter. The furniture can mix and blend as per your choice as long as a large section of your home is doused in the colour of the season and is a constant reminder of a determined personality and the much needed chutzpah.

The Ideal Trend Setter

 

This personality is a fantastic mid way between the two extreme personalities. A person who is sensible, practical and adds a dash of bold in their daily lives just for some fun. They are the black and white formal clothes with a yellow bag for good measure. Ultra violet is perfect for them too because ultra violet is in fact a very versatile colour that can fit both roles of bright and dull. The trend setters are the effervescent ones who would paint their house ivory or grey, throw in some white or beige sofa sets and one bright ultra violet armchair for effect. The contrast is not harsh but still not understated. There is a good amount of the colour finding its way in, but in a rather harmonious way.

Pairing Ideas

 

The colour pairs well with pastel pink, nudes and neutrals, greys and blacks. Neutrals would look best in a printed avatar only to make the whole look come together without a disconnect. Florals or geometric prints are a great way to bring home this style.

With beige floral printed sofas and a predominantly wooden decor, a large painting in hues of ultra violet or a rug in the shade, are a fantastic way to bring the colour of 2018, home. On the contrary a complete ultra violet sofa set can have plush pastel pink cushions or beige elements softening the look. Both these looks are ideal for this personality type.

The Subtle Beauty Finder

 

Our last personality is a clashing opposite of the first one and one can only assume that the styles and advices here are going to be the exact opposite of the ones mentioned above. The beauty finder is an emotional, down to earth, compassionate and earthy person for whom the bold shade is reminiscent of a state of brooding  and emotions. Their soft personalities require a lot of neutrals or pale shades which can make use of the ultra violet in the form of small elements of surprise.  The contrast is soothing and most importantly beautiful.

Pairing Ideas

 

This category of people are going to limit the ultra violet to cushions and throws. A painting with a hint of the shade or lamps and chandeliers in the hue can make an entry in their lives to add just that tinge of colour and liveliness. Only floral prints on textile seem like a likely accompaniment to light shade sofas and white or beige walls. In a neutral themed home the ultra violet can find its spot in the form of soft, flowy curtains as well.
