5 Creative Ways to Use Radiant Orchid: Pantone’s Color of 2014

Every year Pantone hosts a conference where they invite representatives from color standard groups across the globe to meet and engage in discussions and presentations to determine the following year’s Color of the Year. For 2014, Bright and radiant colors have made a comeback! Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s color of the year choice, is bringing energy back into design. The orchid trend, having started in fashion design, has now seamlessly infiltrated home décor. Here are some flawless examples for implementing this year’s bold color into your home.

 

1. If an orchid room is a little too much for you, tone it down a bit. These bright industrial-style chairs add pop to this sleek, contemporary dining room without overwhelming the space.
