Pantone’s Color of the Year is a Perfect Accent to a Mid Century Modern Home

Written by Cindy Marie Jenkins on Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018 at 1:14pm.

Here at Nook, we have a passion for people, places, and properties. There is a reason that we say people first, for what makes a neighborhood special if not the people who live there? Welcome to #TastemakerTuesday, where we’ll feature the visionaries in our favorite nooks who are dedicated to building a better community through their talents.

I hang with a lot of designers, so it isn’t rare for a Pantone Color Guide or two to be whipped out at a party to settle an argument. When Pantone declared Ultra-Violet 18-3838 to be their color of 2018, it was a result of their “year-round work forecasting trends and developing color palettes for our clients,” and became the talk of designer circles. Pantone describes the color as provocative and thoughtful, embracing creative forward thinking for our upcoming year.

We hope you will take this opportunity to refresh an area of your home that needs a new energy, finally repaint that guest room: however, the integration of ultra-violet can enhance your life. We collected a few tips to accomplish this:

  • DREAM UP V2 Espresso Machine: Here’s an easy way to encourage those new healthy meals you’re resolving to eat in the new year. Make your kitchen a fun place to be, with even the daily (or sometimes thrice daily, if you’re me) habit of brewing your coffee in the inspiring ultra-violet shade. Finish it off with this 9-piece silicone utensil set to hang on a wall.

  • Architectural Digest suggests that it’s best as an accent, and we could take that one step further to suggest that with the right style, an ultraviolet door could have just the right unique quality to turn your home into a special one. And you don’t have to be one of the Pink Ladies to embrace a brightly colored Victorian!

  • It seems simple, but the proper color combination of pillows can be a wonderful way to differentiate areas of an open ground-plan. Ultraviolet pillows, whether in a classic pattern or more cosmic, will help keep your reading and writing nook soothing.

  • Maybe you’ve done your dating with ultraviolet and are ready to pick out curtains - for real. Embrace the full mid-century modern experience by allowing sunshine to travel through these Calypso Sheer Panels and spread the love of ultra-violet throughout your entire home.
