The beauty of Radiant Orchid...

As some of you may know, PANTONE selects a color of the year each year. Last year it was an emerald green. For 2014, it is this beautiful purple they have named Radiant Orchid.
I will admit that I never really used to care all that much for purple. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it either. But then the older I got, the more I began to appreciate its majesty and luxury. And while pink is still my favorite color, I do believe a lovely rich, deep purple is one of the most fabulous and versatile colors you can dress a room in.

In fact, as some of you may recall, I painted the central hall in our house in a shade similar to Radiant Orchid and bought a simple but fab purple velvet chair for this room. Does this mean I’m ahead of the trend?

Wishing all of you a lovely week, full of whatever color sends your heart aflutter...
