Feature walls

Bold coloured walls can be overpowering, but when done in moderation, they can add a modern touch to a room. Block colour isn’t for everyone, but patterned wallpapers that feature Ultra Violet will allow you to subtly add this year’s must have interior colour to your home, without it becoming too much.

What style of sofa works best with Ultra Violet?

Lightly coloured fabric sofas work well with Ultra Violet walls, as they allow the bright, bold colour to take precedence in the room, without causing a clash. Alternatively, bold coloured sofas can work well when paired with Ultra violet accessories such as rugs and lampshades, as can be seen below with our Otis sofa collection. The key to making Ultra Violet work in your home is balance, don’t go overboard, and make sure it is carefully paired with the complimenting colours and shades.
