Pantone's Colour of the Year 2018 has just been announced and the Good Homes team are excited to inject this popping Ultra Violet colour into our homes.

Conveying creativity, imagination and originality, this vivid purple hue can be used as an accent on a tufted sofa, a piece of art, on a feature wall to make a bold statement, or can be used to tone down a room with subdued, modern pairings.

Hannah Thistlethwaite, Textiles buyer at Heal’s says: “Purple has long been associated with individuality and self-expression, and Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2018 is full of personality. Perfectly suited to lovers of modern minimalism, this violet shade can be used to brighten up a neutral, Scandi-style colour scheme.'

“When using Ultra Violet in this way, simplicity is key. A statement rug will add texture and depth to a space, whilst a bright sofa in eye-catching velvet adds an eclectic, contemporary feel.”

We've rounded up our top shopping picks to whet your appetite for the new year's favourite colour.
