Ultra-violet is the Pantone Colour of the Year 2018. This colour looks bold, inventive, fresh and interfacing and is expected to be used by people who care for a vivid, refreshing and a provocative look and feel. Plus, it is a versatile choice as one can add the bold touch of ultra-violet in fragments or use its various shades for a rich and abundant look with the colour at the base.

Ultra-violet can be used in a single tone to add royalty and sophistication to the existing living decor. If you feel that a deep violet alone may look dull, pair it with a different shade or a different colour for a whimsical atmosphere look. With an ultra-violet expression, in its many shades and hues, one can never fail to create a dominant and wealthy homely environment.

Sonam Gupta, Design Head of Tangerine says, "Purple is a fine choice for a very refined and deep colour tone impression. It symbolises unconventionality, mindfulness, and inventiveness. It is indeed the way you use ultra-violet in your home interiors, home styling and creations, which reflects upon your originality, taste, personality and choice for the complete house dress-up. It is as much about purple as it is about using it the right way, both qualitatively (creatively) and quantitatively. "

For example, if you need to make ultra-violet look royal and still not overwhelming, you need to use the colour carefully inside the home. For one, it cannot be overused to disguise regally and two, it is never about over fashion with ultra-violet; instead, it has to be democratised, like evenly spread in/around the space so that it looks ravishing and fun to use together.

Ultra-violet is clearly for the trendwatchers and trendsetters as it looks dramatically provocative and thoughtful. It depicts authority and associates itself with a sense of originality, ingenuity and futuristic look and feel in the home décor space.

You can add ultra-violet for a soft touch inside the bedroom and it works beautifully well inside the kid’s bedroom with the ultra-violet and white combination on the furniture, bed sheets or in a theme decoration. It can also be used to cover a traditional furniture piece with fabrics adorning a soft purple tone or a dark and a light purple combination to inspire authenticity and commitment to fashion.

The shades of purple look versatile and can be added to different seasons to give a distinct impression and look. Use it in its original accent or mix it with other colours to bring in a fresh vibe in home styling with confidence and in prominence. No matter how you like painting your home décor picture with it, ultra-violet is a special display at home always.
