 Radiant Orchid is Pantone’s pick.

Yes, it is kind of purple. And you will be seeing it a lot in the coming months in home decor and fashion and most likely painted surfaces. Actually, while we were not looking it has been creeping into our lives very quietly. Walk into any department store and you will begin to notice the prevalence of this very pretty shade.

Be prepared to see this color well represented in home decor. In the next few months you will see it in department stores and big retailers so think about how you may want to bring it into your home. As for paint color, it absolutely has its applications. But is it for YOU? I have specified similar shades for powder rooms and bedrooms and you may even love it in a living room.
