El Dorado Hills - Homes & News - DeeDee Riley Realtor: Radiant Orchid

Radiant Orchid

If you start to see a beautiful orchid color popping up everywhere, you may be seeing Pantone's Color of the year for 2014 - Radiant Orchid.


Radiant Orchid


It is a mix of purples, pinks, and fuschias; and according to Pantone, "reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark imagination".

Pantone is a world renowned authority on color.  For over a decade their influences in color have carried through to beauty, fashion, and interior decorating.  

For the home they are recommending Radiant Orchid in paint, accent pieces, and accessories teaming it with olive, deep hunter greens, turquoise, teal, and light yellows.  It can also be used to lighten up neutrals like gray, beige, and taupe.  

For more about Radiant Orchid and Pantone's past colors of the year visit their website.  If you end up using it in your house somewhere, please share!

DeeDee - It's crazy how we now have the color of the year as a big deal, although I do love the shades of purple that come with an orchid!
