Pantone Colour of the year 2018 – Ultra violet

Since the announcement of the Pantone colour of 2018, both the product and interior design industries have seen a major increase in the popularity of muted purple tones. A great way to incorporate these into your home to create a colourful, yet, calming atmosphere is through laminates, when paired with an exposed beach lipped door, the Formica® Heather (F0233) laminate would give a soft colourful finish to any internal doorset, this arrangement would be perfect for doors in both the living room and kitchen, as well as kitchen panelling.

For a more dramatic feel, homing in on the more glamorous dark trend, you could opt for statement pieces, such as desktops or cabinets to be covered in a Formica® Cassis (F6903). Its rich, theatrical tones would pair well with rooms which feature a muted cream, brown and beige palette, perfect for living rooms, bedrooms and home offices.
