We know this is a bit of a late reaction, but we are in love with Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid. The color derives from the orchidacae flower – it’s a vibrant, rich violet that comes in several tints and hues, making it easy to incorporate in most interiors.

As any up-to-trend, interior design studio , we take Pantone’s Color of the Year seriously. We are pleased to agree that this year’s hue can easily compliment your home when used appropriately. We aren’t sure we’d take the leap of re-painting your walls, but encourage you to try and incorporate a little orchid into your home’s accessories.

From the mouth of the experts themselves,  “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.”

Here are some inspirational ideas you can use in your interiors with the color of 2014.


All you really need is the perfect pop of color to bring a bright room to life.
