Embracing the Pantone Color of the Year

Dec 21, 2017 12:45:19 PM

By now you have likely heard that the 2018 Color of the Year is Ultra Violet. It's a bright and vibrant color that brightens up this Winter season.

However, you may be thinking, "There's no way I can design purple cabinets into my next project." While this color may not be prominent in some of your kitchen and bath designs, it is a great color to incorporate where you can. 

With changing trends, clients may be hesitant to commit to something like purple as a permanent staple in the kitchen. But, they may be open to gorgeous pops of color with changeable tapestries on the wall.

This backsplash incorporates the color of the year in a decorative tiling pattern. If it seems like too much, picture just the hanging pendant light shade as another idea for a colorful accent.

Additional options for adding color into the home include flowers and throw pillows! These are extremely temporary and are a great way to ease a client into pops of color.
