Well hello there, perfect shade of pretty pastel pinky-purple. Last week Pantone announced the 2014 Color of the Year and the award goes to (drumroll) “Radiant Orchid”! We weren’t sure anything could top last years malachite-esque green but this comes dangerously close.
We’re absolutely loving the new “it” hue and can’t wait to start incorporating it into our interiors. (Spoiler alert: we’ll be debuting a new finial in this color very soon!) This is the perfect accent color to add a little POP and it pairs gorgeously with turquoise, dark green…even red! We also can’t wait to let it inspire our spring wardrobe and beauty regimen. It’s bold, feminine, yet still refreshing – everything we could ask for in our new color of the year!
The easiest way to bring this color into your home? Pick up an orchid from your grocery store or flower market and plant in a pretty container!
Bookcases painted in a bold berry hue turn this cozy library into a glamorous retreat.
We love this color incorporated into a dining room, like Miles Redd has done so brilliantly here!
It’s the perfect shade of pinky-purple that’s sweet enough for a little girl’s room, yet sophisticated so she can grow into it.
A small amount goes a long way – like these upholstered seat cushions in this powder blue kitchen.
We love how it pairs with jewel tones like red and brass in this chic little vignette.
Mixing different shades of purple gives this guest room a luxurious feel.
To add a little pop of Radiant Orchid to your home, top one of your lamps with our Maybellene finial!
