Color of the year: Radiant Orchid Plum

This year's color of the year is Radiant Orchid Plum! It is a very versatile, fresh color. It works well in nearly any space to add life and vigor to your home. Go bold and paint an entire room, or subtly use the color as an accent to really make your room pop. It also pairs well with many different colors!

Radiant Orchid works beautifully as an accent in a little girls' room, taking the pale purples and whites to a whole different level while maintaining a beautifully delicate and soft feel. 

  • Browns, tans, and beiges really come to life when paired with Radiant Orchid. It would even work well with well-loved leather furniture or coppery accents.
  • Gold, gray and white - whether used all together or separately - really make Radiant Orchid sing, whether used as a palette for a bedroom, living room, or even a bold and bright kitchen! 
  • Use pops of  Radiant Orchid Plum for a more energetic space when paired with creamy whites or other neutrals. Think fresh and bold.
  • Radiant Orchid complements olives and deep greens and even pairs well with blues such as turquoise or teal - or try some lighter yellows.

Uplifting and bold without being overpowering, Radiant Orchid re-energizes almost any color palette and provides a unifying element for diverse spaces.
