Pantone recently released Radiant Orchid as their Color of the Year for 2014. Radiant orchid is a vibrant and intriguing color that compliments well when paired with olive and deeper hunter greens. This color combines gorgeously with turquoise, teal and light yellows, and livens up neutrals like gray, beige and taupe. If you have a wall that is in need of a fresh coat of paint, in a room without bold colors, radiant orchid is a great choice to make a bold statement as an accent wall, or even wall papering.

Use radiant orchid in a room by accenting furnishings you already have. Throw pillows and Afghans on a
couch breathes fresh life into old furniture. Radiant orchid as drapery on windows adds diverse colors to your walls, or place area rugs to brighten up floors and make them look new again.

Simply adding a new tablecloth or a colorful table arrangement to your table will liven up your hosting area. Upholstering your dining room chairs adds a fun color to your table, as well as other furniture around your home.

The range of accent pieces and accessories in radiant orchid are infinite. Find radiant orchid in paintings and other wall hangings that can add a nice splash of color to neutrally painted walls. Don’t limit yourself to the possibilities; even old light fixtures can be refreshed with a shade of radiant orchid.

Radiant orchid makes a beautiful statement in both bedrooms and bathrooms. Add to bedding you already have as accent pillows, or a completely new bed spread accented in radiant orchid.

Don’t forget about your bathroom. Radiant Orchid can be used on:

  •  Bathroom area rugs
  • Towels
  • Candles

Radiant orchid is a unifying element for a diverse space, and there are a variety of ways to introduce this

distinct style into your home with little cost and effort.
