Pantone's Color of the Year for 2014 - Radiant Orchid

Yesterday color experts at Pantone declared Radiant Orchid as the color of the year for 2014. Radiant Orchid is a harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones. This color choice does not come as a surprise as  lately we are seeing shades of purple popping up everywhere in interior design. According to Pantone, this lovely color is perfectly paired with olive or hunter greens and also shades of turquoise, one of our customer's favorite colors for 2013. We think it will work beautifully paired with gray, also one of the hottest colors in modern design.

We love this color! What a great way to introduce a pop of enchanting color into a room. How can you bring a bit of Radiant Orchid into your home? We have a few ideas for you.

  • Grab a throw pillow. One of the quickest and most inexpensive ways to bring a pop of a new color into a room is by adding a throw pillow to a neutral couch or chair.
  • Paint an accent wall. Also an inexpensive option to add some color to your home. Choose one wall and paint it in this lovely color. If you only paint one wall, it will be simple to change when your are ready for a new color.
  • Update your bedding. Choose new bedding for your bedroom or nursery in a lovely shade of purple. New bedding can give a fresh look to your room.
  • Check out our Radiant Orchid Pinterest board for our latest inspiration.

  • Follow Sweet Dreams My Child's board Radiant Orchid Inspiration on Pinterest.
