FIVE COLOURS HOT FOR SPRING 2018

PANTONE COLOUR OF THE YEAR: ULTRA VIOLET

Let us start off with the Pantone colour of the year. Ultra violet is exactly what it says on the tin: ultra. This mysterious colour is limitless in the ways you can apply it within your home. Bright and exciting, use it to liven your interiors as we head for sunny days.

STYLISH SPRING COLOUR COMBINATION

We've picked our favourite colours from the Pantone Spring 2018 collection. With this range of colour, you can add a breath of fresh air into your interior spaces. Swap the comforting colours of winter with cool and clean colours of spring. Combine the more neutral colours of Blooming Dahli and Almost Mauve with bright splashs of Ultra Violet and Chili Oil. These beautiful colours can be complemented with flowers that are in bloom during spring, such as bluebells and tulips.

TRENDS TO USE IN YOUR OWN HOME

ACCESSORISE

Accessories should make up 10% of your colour scheme. One popular option this season is to pick fringed cushions. These add an extra sense of detailing and a chic aesthetic. These can come in a range of materials and designs: fringes on the edges or midway down the cushions, linen or velvet, etc.

VELVET

Choose a bold, statement piece of furniture in velvet. This ties in very well with the ultra violet colour scheme, creating a sophisticated and royal look to your home. Match your classy sofa or chair with our Serenity legs for a classic shape in a more modern finish. For the full impact, complete your living room with an exciting coffee table – classic or modern, your choice!

BLUEBELLS

Spring and bluebells come hand in hand. While many beautiful flowers begin to bloom in Spring, bluebells are a particularly pretty flower that appears across many woodland areas in late April. This is a fantastic opportunity to put these into use in your home. Not only does it go so well with the Pantone UltraViolet, it brings brightness into your home. Either incorporate the flowers into your home in stylish and modern vases or invest in a painting to keep that feeling all year. You can even learn to paint them yourself: https://store.arttutor.com/sp-watercolour-floral-landscapes/
