Color of the Year

Pantone7Have you been itching to add some color to your life but have no idea where to start?  You’re re not the only one!  Color can be a difficult thing for most people to grasp.  Figuring out what colors you like and what colors you can live with is one of the most difficult aspects of decorating.

A great starting point is looking to Leatrice Eiseman from Pantone for their color of the year along with their colors for the season.  This year’s color of the year is Radiant Orchid which is a pinky purple with cool undertones.  Pantone’s idea of the color was that it “inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”  The exact color of Pantone4Radiant Orchid can vary drastically though from person to person to include deep magenta to a muted light purple and anything in between.  Using these color suggestions as a guideline can help you to add pops of color in the form of accessories in any room of the house.  Already loving color?  Maybe a dramatic change like painting a wall bright color could be for you or maybe even painted cabinets.

Wondering if Radiant Orchid could fit into your color scheme?  Chances are it easily will.  This great shade of purple complements so many different colors from neutrals like greys, blacks or browns to brights like yellows, blues, greens and teals or muted tones like taupe and olive.  It has the unique ability of bringing together any room into a cohesive look.
