After going on and on about beige recently in this post, I thought maybe it was time for a little chat about color.
Have you heard about the color of the year, Pantone’s “Radiant Orchid”?
And it is really quite radiant! Not for wallflowers. This bold shade of purple really stands out.
Could you picture a whole room full?
How about a piece of furniture?
Personally, if nothing else I could definitely live with this – and love it!
If you’re not familiar with Pantone, they do make paint, but they are also know as the global authority on color. Their ‘color of the year’ selection is used by many consumer manufacturing companies to guide their designs for future products.
So be on the lookout for “Radiant Orchid”. I’m starting to notice it all over the place!
Sherwin Williams has their own color of the year called “Exclusive Plum”.
Still in the purple family, but a bit more sophisticated, lots more gray.
It makes quite a statement in this space.
And plum is lovely here in this rug and accent pillows.
Isn’t it beautiful on these dining chair slipcovers?
Benjamin Moore’s color of the year is called “Breath of Fresh Air”.
Here it is on walls. Very breezy indeed.
And I love how it looks on this door!
Can you imagine any of these colors showing up in your home (or wardrobe) anytime soon? Me? I could go for some “Exclusive Plum”. Mixed with beige, of course. : )
