A classic gray and white bath is the perfect counter point to an infusion of the warm and vibrant Pantone color of the year, Radiant Orchid. Layering in colors like deep amethyst and soft pink – close to orchid on the color wheel – is a great way to add depth to a design that features this stylish hue.
“An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”
If I had to choose the perfect soaking tub to coordinate with an orchid color scheme, it would have to be this freestanding slipper tub from Victoria + Albert. Its sides are almost petal-like creating a more feminine-looking form than most soakers.
While last year we enjoyed Emerald Green in our fashions and furnishings, in 2014 we have lots of Radiant Orchid coming down the runways and into our homes. Including orchid in our wardrobes may not require much of a commitment, however when considering dressing the bath it is best to stick with touches of these on-trend colors.
This silk rug from Landry and Arcari would suit a dressing room just outside of a full bath. The soft fibers underfoot would be a luxurious way to start or end any day. And it has just enough interest in its pattern from other colors like charcoal gray and acid green to keep it from being too pre-teen purple.
Likewise, a glass tile that features just a shimmer of Radiant Orchid would be a look that one could live with even after another color of the year is selected.
Will you be adding Radiant Orchid to your home this year?
