8 most stunning phone colors of 2018

Which one is your favorite?



This year, it’s looking like color is a big thing in the smartphone space. New handset releases are coming in prettier colors and I am loving it. Out of all the many phones released this year, my favorite colors remain to be these devices.

Huawei P20 Pro in Twilight

This beautiful device is a definite scene-stealer. The purple-blue-green gradient is just such a beautiful and unique combo.

Sony Xperia XZ2 in Coral Pink

Sony’s departure from their traditional form factor was received with mixed emotions, but the color scheme was on point. It comes in White Silver, Black, Moss Green, and, my favorite, Coral Pink. It’s the daintiest shade of rose that I completely love.

These new Ikea curtains fight indoor pollution by filtering air

Talk about being functional!



Ikea has just announced groundbreaking technology that will not only add to your home decorating or homemaking ventures, as the brand has been apt to do; it will also help keep your living space cleaner by purifying indoor air.

This is Ikea’s Gunrid curtain and it works just like a plant: It breaks down harmful pollutants when it gets in contact with light. The fabric itself has undergone “mineral-based surface treatment” which enables it to destroy common indoor air pollutants like formaldehyde and odor. And since the tech is in the fabric, future products aren’t, in theory, limited to just curtains.

Unknown to most, indoor air pollution is a big deal with some living spaces found to have conditions five times worse than other parts of the world and a higher death toll than outdoor pollution. Mauricio Affonso, Product Developer at Ikea Range & Supply says, “We are creating an affordable and space-saving air purifying solution that also makes the home more beautiful.”

Ikea hopes to put these Gunrid curtains on shelves by 2020.
