Purple and Red
Combing Ultra Violet with red is a rule-busting décor trick that beautiful works. Typically interior designers work with contrasting hues and monochromatic color schemes. But in this bohemian living room by Anouska Tamony pairing the two shades, which sit next to each other on the color wheel, has a dramatic impact.
Each year color authority, Pantone announces a breathtaking collection of shades destined to inspire how we decorate our homes. The company’s top pick for 2018 is Ultra Violet, and we could not be more excited.

Even better, the gorgeous color complements a wide range of cool and warm shades. To help you explore a rainbow of options here is how to work Ultra Violet in every room in your home.
