2014 Color of the Year

It's that time again! Last year, Pantone named the color of the year to be Emerald -- and I think they did a fairly accurate job with that. I started to see a lot of emerald accents throughout the fall and winter seasons, both in home and in fashion.

This year Pantone has named Radiant Orchid as the color of the year. And they will get no argument from me! I am all about these lovely shades of red-violets. I think that there are a lot of good color ways within this monochromatic scheme of lavender that will be quite lovely.

Just as the Emerald last year offered a good way to add accents that offer a little pop so will the Radiant Orchid.

Are you a fan of red-violet hues? Do they exist in your space already, or do you plan to incorporate any as the year goes on?

I also noticed over the weekend at Target, that they are doing color shops in the decor aisles, and they have a color shop that reflects the color of the year beautifully!

I can't wait to hear your thoughts on this year's color and your thoughts on incorporating it!

  1. Ummm... not so much. I like royal purple and a bit of lilac, but not for decor.
