The Pantone Colour Of The Year is an eagerly awaited guide to the aesthetic spirit of the year; a sign not just about what will be gracing new design and the stores, but also what the general mood, or aspirations this year will have.
And after all the easy to live with pastel pinks and greens of the last year, Ultra Violet came as a visual jolt. After a tumultuous year in 2017 it seems a vibrant mood of change and hope is in the air. Ultra Violet has a futuristic quality, with a sense of dynamism and confidence.
It’s synonymous with light, and affects light in powerful ways. Used as a window covering, it can cool down overheated rooms or make stark midday sun feel fresh and clean. Here are few ideas for bringing ultraviolet home.
Using Ultra Violet as a colour of these Duette blinds give the impression of looking up into a cloud-free sky of extraordinary blue.
Luxaflex Faux Shutters can be custom coloured to your paint preference, and can be produced to your bespoke requirements in only a few weeks from measuring to fitting.
This graphic play of ultra violet vertical blinds against white walls and the curve of this classic moulded 1967 S Chair by Verner Panton, makes a deceptively simple scheme infinitely more engaging. With such versatility, the appeal of the colour of 2018 will last long after this design year is out.
