It’s that time of year!  Pantone, the color experts,  announce Radiant Orchid as the color that will have the greatest impact on our lives.  I’m energized, in fact the ability to energize us is one of the attributes of this color.  In home design that translates to livelier palettes than we have seen in quite a while.  This lovely color can add a point of interest to neutral interiors or play the leading role for a dramatic space.

Many complain that they do not want to be dictated to when it comes to the colors available in the market place.  Rest assured that is not the case.  Pantone researches color trends world-wide, analyzes what they see in order to give us a heads up on those colors receiving attention.  Keep in mind, that in order to feel the benefits of this trend, you can make other selections from the pink/magenta color families and enjoy the glow.

The Psychological bonus is the way this hue encourages balance and harmony.  In Feng Shui this color is used as a catalyst for meaningful positive change.  The color of the year is a sign of the times, and I’m encouraged by the emergence of a color that will add life and vitality to our day.  Get ready to enjoy the upcoming year!
