Tips For Decorating The Office With Ultra Violet, Pantone’s Color of 2018. Incorporating the hue into your space without overpowering it can seem daunting.
“Purple is one of the most dynamic shades and often times an intimidating hue to bring into a home,” says Rob Hellander, color and design expert at Behr paint company based in Santa Ana, California. “Ultra violet is a bold choice that can bring confidence and originality to a space when styled correctly.”
Here are some tips for its right use:
- Think about the room itself
Too much color might not look well when put together. You want your eye to gaze the room, not be crowded by looking in every direction. Start with a few items, then gradually add more.
- Work it in wisely
When applied to walls of bedrooms, offices, or rooms used for entertaining, ultra violet infuses energy into the space. For those looking for a more unexpected look, it’s a great pop of color and a touch of drama for a small space, such as an entryway or mudroom.
- Accent the space
There’s a great opportunity to pack a powerful punch of ultra violet in guest powder rooms and guest suites. Instead of painting an entire room, add small accents of layered textiles with throw pillows and rugs. These items will add a fresh look but be easy to change with the color trends that follow.
- Dictate the mood of the room
Violets tend to be thought of as healing, inspiring, and imaginative. If you’re a believer in color therapy, use this shade in a room where you want to exercise creativity.
