Great places to get your Ultra Violet interiors on.

So, it may be a marmite thing but Pantone’s Ultra Violet colour of the year is definitely going to be shaking up the interiors world this year. I mean not many people will be painting their walls with it – or will they? I’m currently doing a purple ‘feature-wall’ bedroom makeover and it was the homeowner’s idea! But most of us will look for more subtle ways to include the hue in our shoots and features.  We’ve come up with a few suggestions of where to find great Ultraviolet homewares whether you love or hate it!

1. Don’t be blind – get ultraviolet curtains.

Hillarys not only have curtains, blinds and shutters but and they also have carpets so there’s plenty of purple hues to fill your pages. This room was styled by the lovely Sophie Robinson for Hillarys. It uses the perfect balance of UltraViolet against a cool, calm backdrop. We defy anyone not to want that egg chair in Ultra Violet!

2. Go bold or go home

The sofa seems like such an obvious choice when it comes to being brave with a big burst of colour and you know that’s what you’ll get when you go to There’s none of that wishy-washy periwinkle or mauve or lilac. This is PURPLE through and through. We think that if we had to choose one item to go Ultra with it would be a velvet sofa like this one!

We also love this stunning velvet love sofa from Amy Somerville   If the ultra is a step too far. A touch unusual and would look so fantastic in a shoot!

Who wouldn’t want a long, hot soak in this deep freestanding bath from Heritage Bathrooms? This one is in our trendy ultraviolet colour but the bath comes primed and ready to paint any colour you choose.

4. Fine threads

When we first saw these sumptuous silks we knew we had to include them in this roundup. There’s something very desirable about James Hare silks – especially in these colours

Orissa Silk, colourways Lavender and Iris, £35 per metre, 100% silk.,

5. Mix and Match

We love to discover a pr’s new client and Lomas&Lomas really are a great find. The husband and wife team have an eye for interiors and experience in design. It’s a winning combination we think. They take inspiration from their natural surroundings near the Peak District. This new Spring Collection which has just launched is based on their photography.  The two ranges are Parsley and Sparrow.  Cushions £45, Lampshades/ceiling shades £48.

6. Arty – facts 


We love this artwork – Decoupage by John Derian at Pentreath & Hall which is handmade in his New York studio using reproduced imagery from John Derian’s vast collection of antique and vintage prints. Trained artisans cut and collage his designs onto handblown glass. They’re something quite special.

 7. Super soft 

Now, we all know we’re going to be featuring countless cushions and throws in ultraviolet so we may as well make them of the best quality and super soft. This Alpaca throw from Bronte by Moon feels as good as it looks.

When it comes to these incredibly bold colours it’s the accessories tht are here to save the day – like this fun hare clock from Perkins & Morley Perkins & Morely PR contact: Lee King Pickle PR 0781 0875863


 9. Flipping heck!

Sorry, couldn’t resist a title like that with a pan like this, from JML Direct. I mean, who wouldn’t want to brighten up their day with an ultraviolet everyday object like this frying pan? Fun and practical and just that little bit fab!
