Almost as much as I was looking forward to Christmas and the coming new year, I couldn’t wait for Pantone to announce their color pick for 2014. For those unfamiliar with Pantone, they set the industry standards in color and their recommendations influence what we will be seeing in fashion, design and ultimately home decor.
Last year’s color was Emerald and the color for 2012 was the fabulous Tangerine Tango.
Their recent recommendations have been gorgeous jewel tones and I was eager to hear what was on the horizon.
Pantone did not disappoint.
2014 is the year of Radiant Orchid.
This regal color is lighter and warmer than the purple that we used in Tessa’s room, but it’s equally beautiful.
Although our home is filled with warm earth tones, I love the challenge of bringing in Radiant Orchid accents for a fresh look.
Ideally our family room with it’s Chocolate Sparkle Walls and Robin Egg Blue could easily embrace this new color trend.
What do you think of Radiant Orchid? Any plans to incorporate this color trend into your home decor? What are some of your favorite design trends that are forecasted for 2014?
