Ultra Violet Furniture
To add an on-trend and dramatic pop of purple to your little one’s bedroom, you should consider adding a piece of ultra violet furniture. Such a bold tone will instantly draw attention and create a fantastic focal point for the room. However, make sure that other furnishings are kept minimal in colour to ensure they aren’t competing against your ultra violet item for attention.
When it comes to choosing an ultra violet piece of furniture, you can select any item you like, be it a bed, crib, bookshelf, drawers or anything else. But, for a real luxury feel, we recommended investing in soft furnishing. A cosy armchair or pouffe will immediately give the room a more beautiful feel.
Ultra Violet Rug
If your home features a gorgeous and minimalistic Scandi style, incorporating a bold colour like ultra violet into your child’s bedroom can be daunting. But a neutral Scandinavian bedroom can create the perfect base for adding an ultra violet touch.
A stylish and bold rug is the simple way to introduce ultra violet into your little one’s bedroom. You won’t need to worry about painting walls or hanging new curtains to embrace the 2018 Colour of the Year. Thanks to its statement shade, an ultra violet rug will instantly stand out without overwhelming the space. Best of all, a rug is an easy item to update when next year’s Colour of the Year rolls in.
Ultra Violet Accents
For an even more subtle way to introduce the ultra violet trend into your kid’s bedroom, consider adding accent items in the colour. For example, a cushion or two and throw blanket will look gorgeous when placed on your little one’s bed.
While ultra violet accents won’t be as statement-making as a large rug or furniture, they will provide a subtle take on this trend. Additionally, with only small accent pieces in the hue, you’ll also be able to incorporate other colours into the room without oversaturating the space.
Ultra Violet Shades
When decorating with on-trend colours, such as ultra violet, you shouldn’t feel confined to using just that single shade. Instead, use the hue as a starting point or inspiration for a lovely purple bedroom. Although ultra violet is the Colour of the Year, it’s created a buzz around the whole purple range, meaning that you can interpret the trend however you like.
To incorporate a range of different violet and purple shades into your little one’s bedroom, consider creating a mural, such as the purple floral one shown below. Alternatively, you can add a few accents pieces in varying purple tones.
Washed-Out Ultra Violet
If bold pops of colour don’t suit the style of your home, but you’d still like your child’s room to appear on-trend, you can consider decorating with a softer violet hue. A washed-out version of the ultra violet tone may not have the same eye-catching effect, but it will look just as stylish.
As soft violet is also versatile, you can use it more in your little one’s room without overwhelming the space. So, feel free to add as much light violet as you’d like. From walls and works of art to cushions and blankets, this shade can suit a wide range of bedroom items.
