ULTRA Violeta

La empresa estadounidense acaba de anunciar que el color que va a marcar tendencia en 2018 es Ultra Violet. ¿Te convence?

Como si lo hubiera anticipado en su estilo vanguardista, el reconocido arquitecto y diseñador de interiores mexicano de Houston, Carlos Castroparedes, ya lo venía empleando en sus proyectos en los últimos años.

De manera que este adelanto lo estábamos esperando.  Cada año, Pantone revela cuál va a ser el color del año que está a punto de empezar. Para el 2018, el elegido ha sido Ultra Violet, o lo que es lo mismo, un tono intenso de morado. Es un color imponente y arriesgado, lejos de Pantones más mainstream como el Rosa Cuarzo o el Azul Serenidad de 2016. El año pasado, se apostó por el Verde Greenery.

El Ultra Violet, o según ADN, Pantone 18-3838, se trata de un morado, elegido para “evocar un estilo de contracultura, el agarre de la originalidad, el ingenio y el pensamiento visionario”, según ha explicado Laurie Pressman, la vicepresidenta de esta entidad.

Complejo y contemplativo, Ultra Violet sugiere los misterios del cosmos, la intriga de lo que viene y los descubrimientos más allá de donde estamos ahora. Los púrpuras enigmáticos también han sido durante mucho tiempo un símbolo de contracultura. Los iconos musicales Prince, David Bowie y Jimi Hendrix llevaron los tonos de Ultra Violet a la vanguardia de la cultura pop occidental como expresiones personales de la individualidad.

Entonada y llena de emoción, la profundidad de Pantone 18-3838 Ultra Violet simboliza la experimentación y la inconformidad, estimulando a los individuos a imaginar su marca única en el mundo y empujar los límites a través de salidas creativas.

Ultra Violet toma el testigo del Greenery, color de 2017; el Rosa Cuarzo y el Azul Serenidad de 2016 —se escogieron dos colores en lugar de uno— y el Marsala de 2015.

Si estás pensando en incorporarlo a hogar, Pantone nos facilita la paleta de colores con las que el Ultra Violet luce en todo su esplendor.

Aunque es un color muy agresivo, el ultra violet puede verse sensacional en la combinación correcta, que ciertamente no está en los colores tradicionales que instintivamente uno escogería.

Add your Personal Touch to your Bedroom Design

Whatever it is, it’s all good, as long as you like it. After all, the bedroom is the private, most personal part of your home. It is where we find retreat when we get home. It is also our hiding place when we want to escape the world. That is why we value what we put in it.

The bedroom is extra special because we can completely claim it as ours. We have the freedom to decorate it any way we want. Speaking of decorating, it is tough to dress the bedroom our way because we do not have the expertise. Styling the bedroom by ourselves can present a variety of obstacles.

The challenges of designing your own bedroom should not hinder you from giving it your own mark. The resources available today made it easier for anyone to come up with a design, he will be proud to present. People with varying personality can now show their individuality. A music lover for example, can present his love for music by putting up musical wall art in his room and it will not look out of place.

Below are additional tips on how to add your personality to your bedroom design:

1. Ask yourself what kind of personality you want your room to represent.

It is easy to say that you want your room to embody your personality, but it is tough to decide how you want the result to look like. How will you represent your perky personality? How can your bedroom translate your fond for fashion? These are just some of the questions you have to answer.

One effective tip would be to create a theme for the bedroom. If you want it to have a happy feel, use colors. However, you have to be careful. If you are not, you room will end up a disaster of mismatched shades.

2. Think of the pieces that will go into the bedroom design.

The different items that will go in the bedroom will speak a lot about you. Your choice of bed will indicate your style. If you like modern style, you probably want to pick the clean-cut design. If you prefer contemporary designs, you will probably have your eyes set on the bed with bold patterns with creative mix of colors and shapes.
There are several pieces today that can represent your personality. If you are a laid-back person, you can achieve a relaxing backdrop for the room using tropical wall decor.

3. Personalize some of the items that go in the bedroom.

If your room is pre-decorated, you do not have to alter everything. Keep in mind that you can still give it your mark by personalizing some of the items you will use in the room. You can always sew drapes and curtains for your window. You can even get crafty with your frames, and how about displaying your own painting. Personalizing some of your accessories is great way to give your bedroom the personal touch you want.
Our bedroom design can represent our personality. Clever choices of bedroom furniture and color schemes can achieve that. In some cases, a mere addition of an accessory that you personalize will do wonders.
