Colour of the Year 2018

Colour of the Year 2018

Ultra Violet - PANTONE 18-3838

2018's colour of the year is a dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade. Since 2000 Pantone has been choosing a colour of the year, there have been various pinks and blues, but this is the first Purple. 

“The Pantone Color of the Year has come to mean so much more than ‘what’s trending’ in the world of design; it’s truly a reflection of what’s needed in our world today.” – Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute.

Justine enjoys incorporating colour into many of her projects, ultra violet purple being one of the many colours she and the clients sometimes choose to bring a space to life. This outdoor terrace with breathtaking views is complimented by a bright purple outdoor rug and a couple of cushions. 

Villa Port Andratx Purple Terrace

Ultra Violet is this years trendy colour. Add a little Purple to your home!  

This bold Bathroom from one of Justine's projects incorporates many shades of ultra violet purple in the shower's mosaic tiles and in the vanity's upholstered pouff. The bedroom below is another example of how to use ultra violet purple, this time in more muted tones, paired with cream and silver creating a more elegant feel. Purple is the only pop of colour used in both rooms, paired with other neutral tones it let's that colour do all the talking.

If sticking to only Ultra Violet Purple is too scary for you, you can always mix it with other colours! In our Home staging Project in Port Andratx we made the purple fireplace and rugs work by mixing in bright orange and electric blue. A big piece of art on the wall with these colours and some throw cushions decorating the beige sofa really helped bring all the elements together, and with the orange armchairs and coffee table we balanced it all out. 

Living Room Villa Port Andratx

In our Villa Bendinat Project we had an open plan kitchen, dining room and living room in which the client wanted a bright and colourful look. The main feature was the Missoni Home PassionFlower print curtains, and from them Justine picked out three colours to them tie the room together: Purple, Orange and Green. In this case purple is not the main colour in the room, it is actually the second or third most used but without it the space would not be the same. The contrasting cushions and the upholstered purple leather dining chairs and a couple of home accessories may not be the main feature but certain are indispensable to the room as a whole.

Home Decor with a good cause

EA Deco Afripe Collection 2017 Products

'Reuse, Reduce, Recycle!'

Every year more than 10.000 tons of old clothes get shipped to Africa. Only some of those clothes are able to be distributed for use, the rest are just left to pollute.

EA Deco collects these clothes and puts them to good use! Their new collection 'Afripe' is made with the old clothes. Collected, cleaned and cut into strips. The clothes made the perfect binding for the boxes and baskets.

Apart from recycling this company gives a great opportunity to girls and women in Africa. Providing employment for them means giving them a future. In 2002 they set up a weaving school to teach young girls from the villages the trade. They are currently working with 14 villages and have given roughly 2000 women stable jobs. 

All Products in this range are unique!

No piece of clothing used in the making of the Afripe Products is the same, although, they are all pastel or pale colours due to the disinfecting process, therefore they are all different.

We are proud to support this great cause and stock these beautifully crafted products at Knox Design.

Capturing the Spirit of 'la Dolce Vita' with the 2017 Spring/Summer Collection

Cover Photo D&G Spring 2017

Designer's Guild Spring/Summer Collection this year takes inspiration from Majolica Ceramics and Murano Coloured Glass.

This collection has a big variety of patterns from brightly coloured geometric shapes, modernized damasks, botanical and floral painterly patterns to subtler marble textures or glamorous textured velvet.  

Designers Guild Spring Summer Collection 2017

Inspired by Ceramics and Glass from the Renaissance of the 16th Century it represents the timeless and sophisticated beauty of Majolica's ceramics and Murano's coloured glass, both renowned for their bright colours, traditionally emerald and cobalt, clear white and ochre.

Incorporating these fabrics and wallpapers into your home this year would be a great way to brighten up some rooms.

Brighten up your garden with colourful outdoor lamps!

Fermob Balad Lamps

The newest additions to the Knox Design Home Store are the Fermob Balad Lamps!

These modern, rechargeable lamps can be used to light pool areas, garden paths, dining tables and outdoor seating areas. 

They are LED and Cordless allowing for complete versatility.

Various Brightness settings allow you to choose a cool intense light or a warm mellow light. The choice is yours! 

These fun outdoor lights come with colourful aluminium handles giving you the choice to carry, hang or place them wherever you desire. The range of colours allows you to coordinate with your existing outdoor decor. 

Personally, we don't think they should be limited to the garden. Why not use them as a night light for your children? Or a very mobile and versatile lamp for indoors where you are lacking a power point?
