radiant Orchid ColorEarlier this year, we shared the news that Pantone had announced their 2014 Color of the Year – Radiant Orchid. Midway through 2014, we thought it was time to check in to see the impact the latest “it” color has had on design.

The marketplace is full of options for bringing this sophisticated shade into your home. From wall coverings to window treatments, paints to pillows, accessories and accents, and even, for those head over heels in love with this tone, an iPhone case for your iPhone5!

If you love the shade, but are not sure you are quite ready for a sofa in this rich, bold tone, a perfectly easy way to be on trend is to enhance a room with Radiant Orchid accessories.

Try out using a pop of color on a light fixture or lampshade. Consider enhancing a neutral sofa with a zing of energy from Radiant Orchid pillows in various prints or gracing a side table with a collection of vases, bowls and candles each in a slightly different hue of orchid.

So chic! Yet, so very easy to change!
