Glowing with soft light and beams of warmth; Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2014, “reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,” says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, in a news release. This perfect new purple speaks to creativity and imagination; it’s chic and captivating, making a uniquely sophisticated statement whether it adorns you or your home.

A winning combination of discreet and showy, Radiant Orchid sets an on trend tone for your room.  Keep it clean and light with touches of soft whites and creams.  Embrace the new hue with York’s WallpapHer Spiral Dance wallpaper (WH2604) with its orchid cast on a crisp white backdrop melded with glinting metallic highlights.  Or keep it simple with WallpapHer’s Diamond Oasis pattern (WH2667) in clean white and orchid cleverly capturing wall art in motion.

Paired with its sister colors of lavender, purple and pink it creates high fashion walls that pack a powerfully feminine punch.  Candice Olson’s Inner Beauty (DN3716) crafts a stunning feature wall that is a work of art and conversation piece all rolled into one. Embracing the entire Radiant Orchid color family, this mirror image design may be accessorized from the palest of amethyst, to the most regal of purple.

Radiant Orchid has a romantic side; pretty as a picture and filled with whimsical charm.  Think of Ronald Redding’s Fontane floral wallpaper pattern (RD3538) with its pretty petals in the artistic dimensional sculptured ink that adorns your walls as if an artisan hand-painted them. Pair with hints of lace and soft silk for a feminine look that is completely up-to-date.
