Earlier in the year I spoke about radiant orchid, the 2014 Pantone color of the year. Since then a lot of people have asked me how to incorporate this color into a non-trendy color palette.
It is hard to be in an all purple room, so incorporating other colors into a predominately radiant orchid tone is key. Adding the sophistication of and subtle tones of grays and creams as a backdrop will help visually. I also like mixing in various tones tones of purple instead of using just the radiant orchid. This will create interest and levels of depth. Look at nature-- flowers do not have just one tone of color. They have several tones of the same color which is what creates that soft shading on a petal.
If you are a fan of this season's color, enjoy these tips and get to work creating your dream room.
