In case you haven’t already heard, the 2014 Pantone Color of the Year is Radiant Orchid. I was reminded of a lovely House Beautiful cover from earlier this year…
The color, in my opinion, can easily become a bit ‘childish’ looking if not used correctly. This living area by New York interior designer, Ashley Whittaker, however, does a beautiful job of showcasing the color in such a way that the resulting space is chic and inviting for grown ups and kids alike.
Not up for a Radiant Orchid redecorating project? Then get your Pantone on with a few additions to your wardrobe. Oh, and in case you’re wondering what color to pair with this shade of purple, I think red (generally speaking) is an excellent choice!
