Pantone’s 2018 Color of the Year is Ultra Violet (PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet). The Pantone Color Institute describes Ultra Violet as “inventive and imaginative”, “complex and contemplative”, and as a color that “lights the way to what is yet to come.”
And the 2018 Color of the Year goes beyond trends. According to Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute, the Pantone Color of the Year is “a reflection of what’s needed in our world today”.
That’s an excellent reason for selecting a color.
Interior Design & Ultra Violet
Ultra Violet is a bold color, making it ideal for drawing attention to a chair, sofa, lamp, rug, or throw pillow.
Cathers Home has used Ultra Violet in the past, including in our Snowmass Ranch project.
And we also harnessed this imaginative color in our Colorful Mountain Retreat project.
Here are some Ultra Violet pieces chosen by Cathers Home.
We’re excited to see how the interior design industry uses Ultra Violet in 2018!

Each year, top interior designers, architects and furniture devotees converge on High Point, NC for the High Point Market, the largest home furnishings trade show in the world. Here we highlight a few significant and impressive trends from the recent show that we expect to see more of in the coming year.
Diamond, a timeless pattern, is often seen in small scale repeat patterns. What we don’t often see is large diamond patterns accenting modern spaces. We were very excited to see the use of large diamond patterns throughout the trade show. We believe these patterns, when used properly, can bring a subtle, sharp, cooling feel to larger otherwise open spaces. Here are some of our favorite uses from the show:
Indigo rules! This year at the trade show it was nearly impossible to escape the bright blue depth of indigo. From chairs and wall hangings to chandeliers and sofas the color indigo ruled the floor. We were frankly a little surprised, after the announcement in January that the Pantone Color of the Year was Greenery we came to the show expecting lush green accents in every room. The strong presence of Indigo wasn’t unwelcome though; with all its depth, we’ve always found Indigo to bring a welcoming, cooling accent to otherwise featureless spaces. Here are some of our favorite uses of indigo at this year’s show:
As we mentioned in our previous blog post, 2016 was the year for metals and neutral tones featuring raw and organic colors and textures. This spring we were very happy to see a resurgence in a style that’s being called sophisticated grandeur, the more colorful, lusher and softer version of 2016’s metal trends. Think deep, sultry and lavish textures. Think qualified decadence. Think gem tones, dark greens and blue ornate china. Fortunately, this trend is not solely reserved for traditional homeowners. At this year’s show, we started to see elements of sophisticated grandeur popping up on sleek, contemporary pieces as well. Here are some of our favorites:

Cathers Home looks forward to continuing to provide award winning services to our clients as we move into another exciting year.
In 2016 we saw a resurgence of warm metals. Bronze, gold and rose gold all grew in popularity, in part, due to the Pantone 2016 color of the year – Rose Quartz – a perfect match for rose gold and other warm metals. As we move into 2017 we are seeing a continuation of these trends with a focus on mid-century metal accents. In this Ransom Culler chair by Thayer Coggin we see the warm metals accenting the classic lounge chair stylings.
We see more examples of this trend in the Thomas O’Brian Buffet Lamp made with a hand rubbed antique brass finish and an alabaster base and the Barry Goralnick coffee table featuring Agaria marble with a French brass finish.
We look forward to following this trend and seeing what uses it might have for Cather’s Home. Another trend we have seen this year is the use of angle patterns in textiles. While warm brass can create a soft and rounded feel, an angular piece can bring a sharp accent to an otherwise muted space. A classic mid-century interior design technique that is seeing a resurgence. We can see this trend in this mid-century style console made with smoked eucalyptus and featuring random triangles with opposing grain. Another example is this cotton pillow with a down insert called “Lesson in Angles.”
In the coming year Cather’s Home looks forward to seeing how we can use these new and exciting stylistic resurgences to provide cohesive and unique spaces for our clients. Make sure to come by our retail store in Basalt, CO and see what cutting edge pieces we have in stock.
Like a nutrient-packed elixir, 2017’s NOURISHMENT theme rejuvenates both the mind and body. Focusing on deep sea blues, lustrous greens and grounded purples highlighted by matte metals and stone, NOURISHMENT creates spaces that are reminiscent of the deep ocean or the cool shade of a dense forest. Giving form to the concept that to be nourished, in both body and mind, is true luxury.
Top designers throughout the United States envision NOURISHMENT as one of the top trends throughout 2017 with applications from interior design to architecture. This cutting edge and experimental approach to luxury gives Cather’s Home Interior Design yet another concept to inform and inspire our timeless, classic and distinctive work.
Every year the Pantone Color Institute releases the “Color of the Year.” This year the influential award has gone to Greenery or Pantone 15-0343. The color was picked after Pantone spent a year studying global cultural and social trends. In 2016 Greenery was offered on car models, showed up in street art and on fashion runways and in the global environmental movement. In retrospect, the choice makes sense.
The executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, Leatrice Eiseman says “Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.” Pantone goes on to describe the color as “nature’s neutral” and revitalizing, rejuvenating and refreshing. We couldn’t agree more. Cather’s Home is based in the Roaring Fork Valley and has always felt the revitalizing nature of the fresh spring greens that spread over Prince Creek, Mt. Sopris and the whole Aspen Snowmass valley.
With Pantone naming Greenery the color of the year we expect to see a continuation and expansion of current color trends, including an increase of the color’s use throughout modern interior design. Obviously, a strong green doesn’t need to be the focus of every home and like always, Cather’s Home will maintain its devotion to the time-tested design principles that have made us a fixture in the Aspen Snowmass area.
Though, as spring rolls around in 2017, we’ll be taking a close look at the fresh spring buds and let the rejuvenating nature of greenery and spring in the Roaring Fork Valley revitalize our ideas and our work.
Cathers Home is excited to announce our upcoming customer appreciation sale. We know we couldn’t continue to provide our high-quality services without our devoted customers here in the Roaring Fork Valley and spread throughout the country.
To show our appreciation, on December 19-24, we are offering 30% off in stock furniture and accessories and 20% off all in stock patio furniture. * Our store, located at 530 Basalt Ave Basalt, CO is open Monday-Friday 10:00am-6:00pm and Saturday 10:00am-5:00pm and has 3,000 square feet of stocked showroom to explore.

Cathers Home is proud to introduce Cathers Tents. As an award-winning Aspen interior design firm, we chose to extend our expertise into events―specifically, temporary event venues. The goal behind our new venture is to make your event tenting experience one in a million.
Cathers Home founder, Paul Cathers, designed these unique tents. To create a light and airy ambience, Paul included flowing, natural fabrics throughout the interior. Fabric covered hardware, poles, and metal surfaces, along with hand-carved teak supports and finials add an elegant finish.

Cathers Tents are unparalleled in the tent rental industry, and will make your tenting experience as memorable as the event itself!

Accent walls have been the focus of much debate in the design community. Some feel strongly that accent walls do more harm than good. Others, including designers at Cathers Home, believe that when used properly, they are a powerful tool to create unique and dynamic spaces. To shed light on this topic, here are some of our best practices for accent walls.
1. Have a reason.
Too often accent walls beg the question, “why didn’t you finish painting the room?” When used properly accent walls can serve to highlight the main piece of furniture in the room such as a bed (seen above) or a desk. Accent walls can also be used to highlight unique architectural elements, seen above, drawing the eye to the uniqueness of the space and in the case of the bunk beds seen below adding depth to a smaller space. When making the choice of adding an accent wall, always ask yourself why.
2. Color matters.
Once you have a reason for an accent wall you have to pick a color, second to the location this is the most important piece of a successful accent wall. Different colors create different effects on the eye; warm colors seem to come towards the viewer while cooler colors, as seen in the patterned grey wall of the bunk bedroom above, tend to draw away. Keeping this in mind when choosing a color for you accent wall will help you make the best choices for the feel and flow of your space.
3. Don’t be shy.
Once you’ve committed to an accent wall, do your best to complete the design in regards to the whole room. Whether it’s a patterned on the accent wall or a unique series of accessories to fit with the room, do what needs to be done to make the whole space right. In the office space seen below Cathers Home added a unique patterned accent wall that is highlighting the desk while matching with the orange lamp, creating a work space that is at once boldly unique and subtly cohesive.
The kitchen is the core of a home. This is where we gather to nourish our body and soul. There is nothing more rewarding than sharing moments with loved ones over breakfast, or while preparing a meal to enjoy after a busy day of outdoor activities.
However, when the kitchen is not designed to meet a homeowner’s needs, this nonfunctional spacecauses frustration and disappointment.
Prior to Cathers Home remodeling this kitchen, it was small, cramped, and could not possibly accommodate the family that used this home as their second residence. They enjoyed the kitchens in their other homes, not only for meals, but throughout the day as a main gathering space. Also, the original kitchen did not have the comforts of a modern space, and to be frank, was quite uninviting—the opposite of what a kitchen should be.
With a deep understanding of the family’s needs and lifestyle, the Cathers Home interior design team worked towards opening up the room to the rest of the home, and allowing for abundant counter space.
To create a light and unobstructed space, we replaced the peninsula with a double island. This opened the room into the dining and living areas, while offering multiple surfaces for meal prep and entertaining.
Contrasting finishes add interest to an otherwise clean design. Though versatile, an all-white kitchen can read a bit boring, so we installed faceted crystal pendants over the exterior island to add a touch of glamour. Last but not least, we installed a professional European espresso machine to energize the early birds of the family.
Now, the owners of this home have a comfortable, functional, and welcoming space to gather in anytime of the day, whether for a café au lait in the morning, or a glass of wine in the evening. There is enough room to prepare and host large feasts, but also sufficient intimacy for a tȇte-a-tȇte.
Even part-time Aspenites will agree that in our small, mountain town, wine is more than just a libation. It is often a large part of our lifestyle, and we take it very seriously. So it is no surprise that many of our clients devote a dedicated cellar to this potion, sometimes larger than their Kid’s Bedrooms. They also expect their collection to live in a very well designed space.
In this particular room, Cathers Home were asked to create a temperature and humidity controlled environment that will showcase an extensive collection of rare and limited vintages as well as the everyday bottles. To achieve an authentic yet unique cellar ambiance, we used reclaimed wood from European wine boxes to lay the floors. Custom storage was built around the perimeter to accommodate over a thousand bottles. A bar at the back of the cellar anchors the room and provides counter space for opening and decanting those precious bottles. The colorful backsplash is elegant gemstone surface that we backlit for extra drama. And to finish off the room we used a local artist to create playful light fixture using what else but wine bottles. The contrast between natural old woods, refined gems and a bit of whimsy creates the perfect blend of glamorous and rustic elements that Aspen Chic style is known for.
