John Lewis Vase £15 – First up we have this stunning coloured vase, this simple piece could brighten any window sill or use it to make a statement by placing it as the centrepiece on your dining room table. You could change this up weekly with the use of 2 or 3 fresh flowers, personally I would select crisp white flowers for an instant striking contrast.
Debenhams Sofa Currently On Sale For £635.65 – This sofa designed my John Rocha, would look phenomenal as a focal point in almost any living room. With its simplistic design it allows for a flush of uncomplicated colour. If you want to layer the textures of the sofa you could team it up with a selection of scatter cushions or a textured throw across the back.
Debenhams £22.00 – These pillows are great to inject some colour into a room. They would look great teamed up with the John Rocha sofa shown above or added to a bed set to release the colour elsewhere in your home. The images of flowers will help invoke peaceful images of serenity, life and the wilderness.
Purple Bed from Very.co.uk £849 – £1199 – This luxurious bed comes with a crushed velvet headboard, it would make a stunning feature point in any bedroom. This is one of the more subtle hues as it’s mixed with the crushed velvet which combines colour and texture which helps to softens the look.
Ted Baker Throw Currently £129 – Ted Baker is one of my favourite current designers, I love this bed throw from their home range. It would make a striking addition to any bed. The throw would be a great addition for creating layers of colour in the room.
Argos Blackout Curtains £39.99 – Not only are these blackout curtains in keeping with the Ultra Violet Pantone colour, they’ll also help block out external light and allow for a more restful night sleep. They’re also lined to allow for draught exclusion. So they’re both visually and sensuously appealing.
Studio Canvas Art £19.99 – If you want a more subtle way of introducing violet, this visually stimulating canvas would make a great piece against a white wall. I love the mixture of colour in this canvas, I couldn’t sit and look at it for ages, it has an air of peacefulness and tranquility which is what the Pantone shade is aiming to achieve.
IWOOT.com Ultra Violet Bathroom Set £21.99 – Finally, we have this bathroom set from IWOOT, I personally haven’t thought of purple as a colour for my bathroom before seeing this set. I adore the two tone of the purple mixed with the darkness of the black. It makes a break from the more traditional bathroom colours of greens, blues and blander colours.
