Radiant Orchid is the new black!

And the Pantone Color of the Year for 2014 is…… RADIANT ORCHID! 

When deciding how exactly you can or should incorporate this color into your home, there are a few things for you to consider, such as whether you want to subtly introduce it or take it to the next level. You also may want to banish the preconceived notion that it only belongs in your daughters room!  You would be surprised that this color is the perfect balance of playful and sophisticated and fits perfectly in any room in the home.You can go large by choosing it for a main focal piece like an upholstered sofa or sectional or ease into it with smaller accents like a painted wall and accessory pieces like area rugs, lighting or pillows.  Whichever way you choose to implement it, we feel this uplifting color will bring joy to you and your loved ones at home whenever you encounter it.

Radiant Orchid has a combination of confidence and magical warmth that is eye catching and ignites the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple that will draw you in with its charm. With a combination of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates joy, love and health! Nothing more we can ask for in the coming year!

“While the 2013 color of the year, PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald, served as a symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity, Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society.” 

Spruce up interior spaces by incorporating this eye-catching hue in paint, accent pieces and accessories. As adaptable as it is beautiful, Radiant Orchid complements olive and deeper hunter greens, and offers a gorgeous combination when paired with turquoise, teal and even light yellows.

Likewise, the vibrant color is sure to liven up neutrals including gray, beige and taupe. Uplifting and bold without being overpowering, Radiant Orchid reenergizes almost any color palette and provides a unifying element for diverse spaces.
