I love the new color for 2014!! The nice characteristic about this color is EVERYONE can wear it and decorate with it. Since purple is created by a combination of red (warm color) and blue (cool color) this particular color works with any skin tone and any warm or cool color decorating scheme! Pantone ® just announced this 2014 color of the year as Radiant Orchid (18-3224)! We will start to see this color popping up everywhere, makeup, fashion, home goods and even in electronics! This is a fun, versatile color, and I think Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute® describes this upcoming color perfectly,
“…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. An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid, inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.” (Read the full press release by clicking here.)
Hummmm, beguiling charm…I do like the sound of that! I’m sure many of you may be hesitant to run out and paint your walls this vibrant color, but what a lovely accent color to add that pop to a room!
There are many ideas and fun things out there that you can use to accessorize your home in this lovely Radiant Orchid! If you feel you need help with a room or managing colors, contact Debbie@RedesignRight.com for all of your home redesign needs.
