Start Your Year Right: How to Use the Color of the Year in Your Home
Colors are pretty powerful. If you use it right, you can send a message, assert a mood, or even affect your state of mind. This is why it is actually worth it to learn how to apply colors tastefully in your life. Every year there seems to be one color in particular that is called ‘Color of the Year’.
In light of this, we wanted to take the time and give some useful suggestions on how you can use the “color of the year” and brighten up some spots in your life. It just so happens that this year’s color is Ultra Violet. This isn’t exactly a color that is normally used as it is bright and in certain situations it can be an eyesore. However, if you do manage to use it tastefully, it is a great color to have in your home. Here are a few suggestions for you:
If you are in a ethical mindset, you can make use of faux rugs in the shade of ultra violet to spruce up any drab floors or even your couch. You can use it to add accents to your seating options.
This is by far the more popular usage of the color. Throw pillows are versatile and can be used in any part of the home that has seating. Ultra violet throw pillows add a big statement color to pull together a room’s focal point.
The rule of “less is more” does not always translate. When it comes to colors as bold and rich as Ultra Violet, it all depends on how you use it. Always consider the lighting, the placement, and the object. Think three months ahead if you are planning on making any big changes like wall paint. Is this still something that you would like your wall to be three months from now? If not, best to not make any big changes.
