2018 Colors of the Year- Ultra-Violet and Oceanside

Have you heard about the different colors of the year? Several companies chose a color to be featured for each year. Pantone picked Ultra-Violet. I have to admit- purple is not one of the colors I use in my home or my clothing. It just isn’t something I am drawn to. I love it outside in the garden, but not in my home. But I did look up a few ways to use it as an accent in your home.

If ultra-violet is a color you absolutely love, how about going all out and getting this plush sofa? This would be quite the statement piece!

Or maybe something a little more subtle? These Charoite Glass Bottles are stunning!

I think pillows make a great accent piece and they are easy to change out when the season changes or your decor changes. This Mongolian Fur pillow looks so cozy!



Sherwin-Williams color of the year is Oceanside. Now this is my color! It just makes me want to be on a warm beach somewhere with the sand in my toes and the sun shining down. This would be great as an accent piece color and would really liven up the room!

How about this great Armless Chair? This actually has other piece and can be made into a full sofa.

For a smaller accent piece, here is the beautiful Glacier Glass Vase from Raymour and Flanigan. I love the mix of colors all through the vase.

These Teal Dot Velvet Pillows look so glamorous and would be the perfect addition to the Oceanside color.

How about some color in you bedroom? This Pinched Pleat Teal Comforter would be perfect!  I love the pinched pleat. It makes a great detail.

I hope you enjoyed these new colors of the year 2018! Do you think you will try to incorporate either of them into your home? I would love to know!
