Pantone’s color of the year for 2014 is a beautiful orchid color, also known as “Radiant Orchid,” and there are some beautiful ways to use the Pantone color in your home. This year's color is a luxurious purple color that’s exotic, welcoming and warming at the same time. It’s always been my favorite shade of purple and the color makes a beautiful accent to your home. You don’t have to go overboard if you’re trying to update your home’s color this year, but do consider a few slight makeovers. Here are a few of my favorite ways to use the Pantone color in your home, and they’re fairly economical too. Not only will you be in style, but you’ll also enjoy the warming, cozy effects of this luxurious shade.
One of the most popular ways to use the Pantone color in your home is through your bedding. Whether through a nice bedspread or a simple blanket, your bed is usually the center focal part of your room, making it a great accent piece. Trying buying a silk or high quality cotton bedspread, even if it’s the only way you use it in the room. It will make such a bold difference, and it adds an especially romantic feel, perfect for a place of rest and intimacy like your bedroom.
