Using the 2014 Pantone Color of the Year in Your Home

The Pantone color of the year for 2014 is Radiant Orchid. How can you use this bold hue to add a fresh look to your home? Don't feel like you need to cover every wall and surface with this bright color. There are ways to seamlessly incorporate such a shade for even color-shy homeowners.

Add a punch of Radiant Orchid with:

  • Linens. A perfect way to take a master bedroom to a new level of luxury is adding linens that feature orchid tones. Other rooms can benefit from oversized pillows and chenille throws. Liven up bathrooms with new, fluffy towels in the right color. Hang up new towels and potholders in the kitchen for a special look. Glamorize dining rooms with updated table linens.
  • Paint. Those truly captivated by Radiant Orchid can paint rooms this color. But for others who would like to tread more lightly, they can do creative things like: paint an accent wall, paint a wide stripe of the shade on a wall or paint a piece of furniture. Want to show the world you're really behind this color? Paint your front door this modern color.
  • Landscaping. Think this shade may be too bold for you? If you like Radiant Orchid but are scared to work with it inside, use it in the garden. There are many flowers in this hue that any home garden could benefit from like: peonies, hollyhocks, geraniums and petunias.
  • Accessories. Maybe you feel this shade is a bit too vibrant for your subtle ways, and that's okay. Add small touches of this color throughout the home with lamps, rugs, knickknacks and dishes.

Choose how you want to use the 2014 color of the year in your place to brighten your home base.
