    Now it can be an expensive hobby to change your bathroom décor on a yearly basis, so the most common way to incorporate each new shades is with your bathroom accessories. A change of towels and bathmat for example, can completely change the way your room looks. Small additions of living coral really make the shade pop, especially against a neutral bathroom background.


    If you’re not one to shy away from colour and really want to brighten up your bathroom, this shade will certainly do just that. Add it to a feature wall or varying hues throughout to really embrace it.  Whilst the colour is rich and vibrant in tone it isn’t overpowering so works well with both dark and light surroundings. Living Coral can also add depth and warmth to greys, smoky teals and beige. So be sure to accessorise with these tones.

    With such a bold colour it can be quite daunting to paint all your walls, but that doesn’t mean you have to shy away from it. Instead opt for changing your bathroom towels, shower curtain and accessories instead! You’d be surprised how much of an impact this will make to your bathroom. The best bit is Ultra Violet accessories will dazzle against white and look incredible with greys and blacks. It will work superbly with any bathroom suite colour.

    If you are one for bold decor and really making a statement, then grab the paint and go for it! The blue purple shade is amazing backdrop for modern white furniture and create a bold and dramatic look with darker greys or black.  If you don’t want to paint the whole room, just choose a statement wall or recess and make a feature out of it. If you find the shade a little too dark or daring once its on the wall, you can always brighten it with artwork or a mirror.


    We'd love to hear your thoughts on the colour that will dominate 2018. What do you think of the 2018 shade? Will you be adding this to your bathroom? Or any other room in your home?
