Pantone Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid

With summer in the air, Pantone’s Radiant Orchid is trending now more than ever. When it comes to interiors, this purple hue is meant to catch the eye and brighten up any room. Radiant Orchid pairs well with olive green, turquoise and periwinkle, as well as orange and light yellow.


If you love a statement, a pair of upholstered arm chairs or x-stools in Radiant Orchid would make a stunning addition to an entry way. A crushed velvet or linen are popular fabrics to choose from.
If you find the bold color intimidating, try mixing it in subtly with smaller accessories such as coasters, picture frames, and decorative trays.  Or look for patterned pillows and blankets that bring in a hint of the color. Even if it’s a darker or slightly lighter hue, the color will come across and your home will look Radiant.
