Ultraviolet Up Your Home

Written by: Carla De Guzman/Monday, Jan 08, 2018 09:17 AM

It’s the start of the new year, and it feels like the perfect time to change up your living space. A good resolution needs a place to grow and be inspired, and the new year seems like the perfect excuse to play home stylist. Pantone has, over the years, thrilled and excited designers and followers with their choices for their color of the year—the color that will mark the year to come. Pantone calls Ultraviolet the color that best represents the night’s sky and "is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own:"

 

This year’s color, Ultraviolet, is a bold choice for any home, but we think these awesome finds will be a great way to ease in a bit of the color’s energy and inspire you to reach for the stars in the year to come.
