Emerald Green is SO 2013. This year, Pantone has crowned “Radiant Orchid” as the “2014 Color of the Year.”

According to Pantone, Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health.

Adding Radiant Orchid (Purple) to Interior Decor

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 re-energizes almost any color palette and provides a unifying element for diverse spaces. (Pantone)

While it may be a challenge to find the exact shade of “Radiant Orchid,” we think it is safe to say adding splashes of violets, fuschias, lavenders and other shades of purple are sure to brighten up any room.
