The week is almost over but I have a little bit of interior excitement to get us through this Friday… Pantone has revealed it’s color for 2014 and I have to say that it’s far from the grey cool tones that have been pretty prominent this past year.
“Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination. An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society.” – Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of Pantone Color Institute
I think it’s a beautiful, warm mixture of pink and purple. Whimsical yet sophisticated. Perfect as an accent color but also strong enough to build a room around it. The picture below is a great example of how the color can be used as a primary color of design and still yield a well balanced, sophisticated look. What do you guys think, will you be adding some Radiant Orchid to your home?
