Pantone Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid

Have you heard the news? Pantone recently came out with their 2014 Color of the Year and it’s Radiant Orchid, and I am loving the meaning behind it!


I have never been much of a purple gal, but have to admit that I have been drawn to it more over the past year. What about you? Radiant orchid appears to be a shade of purple with pink and fuchsia undertones and tends to go well with neutral colors such as gray, metallics like gold, and bright hues like turquoise.


You can boldly add this color to your home by painting doors, accent walls, or furniture pieces and using various shades throughout the space. For some temporary flair sprinkle in some throw pillows, blankets, DIY art, or even add just a splash with some beautiful flowers in contrasting aqua mason jars.

From big impacts to small details, here are ways to incorporate Radiant Orchid into your home this year. Enjoy!

      Yes, that is the most frustrating thing ever! I spend soooooo long trying to find the original source, but there comes a time when I have to move on. It does annoy me that a lot of other blogs will simply show the photo with no source or source someone else who posted it but didn’t create it. Boooooo.I just want to give proper credit where it’s due! :) Thanks for stopping by!
