As we head into 2018, and interior decorators are keeping their eyes on the latest color trends. Ultra Violet (the color, not the rays) was recently announced as Pantone’s 2018 Color of the Year, and it’s already making inroads in fashion and home decor. According to Pantone, this “dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.”
Brilliant violet isn’t the only hue you’ll be seeing lots of this year, however. Pantone’s TECH-nique palette is one of many bright and bold color schemes the color authority has selected for 2018.
Color Your World
If you’re looking for an Ultra Fun way to spice up your kitchen, consider adding a color “pop” with a few accessories, or even a big bold “splash” of Ultra Violet with a full set of appliances.
Seeking a less expensive and less permanent way to incorporate the new Pantone Color of the Year? Lots of fun and quirky kitchen accessories are available, including this cool espresso machine and just about everything else you can imagine. If you prefer official flair, the Pantone website offers a wide array of items in Ultra Violet.
Be Bold. Be Bolder!
If you’re all-in on color, Elmira offers a full range of appliances in virtually any color you can imagine, including Ultra Violet. “Go for bold” and create a style statement by pairing white cabinets with 1950s-inspired Northstar appliances in Ultra Violet.
Tie it all together with a matching splashback, microwave and dishwasher panel, and you’re ready to go. If you’re not quite that committed, maybe add one appliance – say a fridge or microwave – in violet and the rest in a neutral tone.
If violet isn’t your style, you can choose from a variety of “not-so-standard” colors, along with hundreds of custom colors to create your perfect look; for example, Northstar in Mint Green or Antique appliances in Liberty Blue.
Transforming your kitchen into a visually stunning masterpiece can be as temporary or permanent as you want. What better way to kick off 2018 in style than to incorporate a pop of eye-catching color!
