Have you started decorating with Radiant Orchid yet?

Have you made use of Pantone's Color of the Year in the home sector yet? If not, what are you waiting for? Let's face it: This Milwaukee winter seems as if it's dragging on forever, and it's only the beginning of February. To liven up your living quarters, introduce the vibrant shade of Radiant Orchid. Take a look at some tips to help you use this trendy hue.

  • Real flowers: What better way to brighten up winter than with an actual living plant? "Buy an orchid, already! These gorgeous flowering plants require indirect sunlight and only light watering (read: they are hard to kill). Your care and patience with these lovelies is rewarded with blooms that last a month or more!" urges Kelly Aaron, blogger for lifestyle website Ecosalon.
  • Trendy patterns: You don't have to stick to solid colors to exude a trendy vibe. Instead, look for throw rugs or window coverings in chic patterns like Chevron or classic floral prints. 
  • Window fashions: The right curtains and drapes can help make a room come together. The lovely shade of purple is sure to brighten up your living room, or create a soothing oasis for your bedroom. In fact, purple is actually shown to make you feel more calm and relaxed. If the winter blues are getting you down, just add a splash of purple to the mix!
