Pantone just announced Radiant Orchid as the 2014 Color of the Year, offering tones of pink, purple and fuchsia. According to Pantone, the color “emanates great joy, love and health.” How will you use it in your home?

Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute Leatrice Eiseman comments, “An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society.” Radiant Orchid’s cool and warm undertones graced the Spring 2014 runways and have already popped up on the red carpet.

Radiant Orchid for Interiors

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.
