All design blogs need a post regarding the Pantone color of the year, right? This year's selection, Radiant Orchid, is exciting to me.
This image shows a lovely shade of purple with pink undertones. I've seen images all over Pinterest with shades varying from true purple to a bright fuchsia, one of my personal favorites, but I am trying to recognize images and design that really use color as close to the paint chip as possible. And it's easy to find everywhere!
In Nature- This image from Conde Naste Traveler is breathtaking. I've never seen anything quite like it in person, but it's ethereal and magical and most of all lovely.
In Interior Design- Look at the stairway showcased here. The addition of color marks the clean lines and makes a big impact. Beautiful!
In Fashion- Her Radiant Orchid colored pants work wonderfully with the dark eggplant jacket. Don't be afraid to try this color in your fashion or even makeup. Experiment and have fun.
This sea spray and coral cluster are pieces in my dining room that just happen to have lovely shades of Radiant Orchid. Take a look in your home and closet and see what you might already have!
This is where I share everything from design ideas and tips, images of beautiful spaces to fashion and recipes.... and of course stories and pictures of my rescue pup and sidekick, Frito Pie.
