Design Insider: Using Pantone's COTY Radiant Orchid Now
from Architectural Digest
Painting your walls purple can be a bold move, depending on the shade. Lighter tones of the color can look quite neutral and calming. The deep, saturated versions look luxe and regal. There's so much flexibility! Don't worry that your purple walls will be off trend next year. They'll be so chic that they're forever stylish!
Choosing a new piece of art can be an emotional experience. I love the idea of celebrating and investing in a New Year's resolution with a piece that you'll treasure for years. Radiant Orchid is such a bright and cheerful color that will brighten any room!
Accessorize with it
A floor-length Radiant Orchid gown would be fabulous! However, there is an array of purple accessories that will add an on-trend, exciting dash to your existing outfits. What a chic way to add a pop of color!
Plan floral pieces around it
Flowers are always a great idea. Nothing makes a space feel as warm and inviting as a lovely bouquet or centerpiece. Radiant Orchid alone makes a standout floral piece. Here, it pops against pink in a memorable centerpiece!
