Electrify the Living Room
The best thing about ultraviolet is the way it brings a certain electricity to a room. Whether you’re a minimalist or maximalist with your home decor, ultraviolet is there to spice it up in all the right ways. If you feel like you have all the big things in your space but need smaller accent pieces to tie it all together, throw in some ultraviolet pillows, art, or coffee table decor. If you feel like you have enough of the smaller pieces then start searching for the perfect ultraviolet accent chair, drapery, or rug.

Tie in a Space Gone Stagnant
One of the best things about ultraviolet is that it can pair beautifully with a wide range of styles. From vintage to modern, it truly is a versatile color that caters to almost any type of space. The best way to tie in a styled space gone stagnant? By adding a statement piece that’s on the ultraviolet spectrum. Since there are so many different shades, a good rule of thumb is to choose a shade that complements one other area of the space. If you have a darker wall, be sure to choose a lighter shade for the statement piece. If you have pops of gold or silver throughout the space, consider choosing a darker yet subtle shade for the statement piece. Paying attention to those details will help bring balance to your room.

Monochromatic Color Scheme
If you’re feeling something bold, try a monochromatic color palette. With a color as beautiful as ultraviolet, pairing its different shades together is both unique and easy to do. Accenting with colors like silver and white will lend an overall elegant look to your space.

Statement Making Drapery
One of the easiest ways we use ultraviolet in the home is through pieces that make a room speak for itself, such as curtains and drapery. It’s a fantastic way to add some vibrance to the room. When starting a decorating project, we often recommend hanging the drapery first as it is a main focal point of the room and can strike major inspiration.
By now, we’re hoping that you’re feeling the inspiration to incorporate ultraviolet home decor into your life with enthusiasm and confidence. When it comes to adding such a vibrant color to a home, it can be intimidating at first but our goal is to show you that it can absolutely be done and be done successfully!
