Have you heard? The color of the year is radiant orchid. The trend forecasters at Pantone decided on a deep purple with fuschia and pink undertones to dominate the decor scene for 2014. If your home or party decor needs to be upgraded, try incorporating this new “it” color.

Home decor
Wall color – Whenever your pad needs a facelift, just change up the wall color. Add a fresh coat of paint in any room in your home. Radiant orchid, in particular, would work well on living room and bedroom walls.

Linens – Pick up some deep purple linens for your bedroom. Towels in a radiant orchid hue would also work great in a guest or master bathroom. Don’t forget about personalized items – if you like custom monogrammed napkins, this is the perfect opportunity to design styles in this trendy color.

Pillows – You can also bring in pillows with touches of radiant orchid throughout. Select high contrast patterned options or sleek styles in a solid hue.


Party decor
Custom coasters – When you’re hosting your next party, be sure to personalize your coasters. You can add your initials to them or design each one with a clever message or joke.

Matches – It’s a good idea to always have matches on hand, especially when you are hosting a dinner party. It’s much more stylish to pull out a personalized set of matches instead of the generic store bought type.

Travel cups – If your hosting an outdoor bash, hand your guests a warm drink. But don’t do so in an ordinary mug when you can design a travel cup with a sleeve to match your event. Write a message like “Coffee is always a good idea” or “Stay warm.”
