Pantone's Color of the Year on Etsy


In case you haven't heard, the color of the year is Radiant Orchid (at least according to Pantone, the "authority" on colors and trends).  I will be the first to admit that this is not a color that I would typically be crazy about.  I'm more of a neutral person, so vibrant purple is a bit of a stretch.  But the more I searched for some orchid inspiration, the more I realized that it is actually a great color for accessories and fabrics to mix in with those neutrals.  There seems to be a wide range of purple hues that are falling under this Radiant Orchid name and the rainbow of choices really mix well together.






Just like last year's color of emerald, this color will be popping up in fashion, home decor, design, and food (believe it or not, I've already seen purple cookies, cake, and candy apples). 

I did a little searching on Etsy to find some great Radiant Orchid choices.  There is a treasury of many of the items I found on Etsy, but here are a few of my favorites......




clay bowl from Batton Clayworks





orchid flower photography from Amanda Rae




mercury glass votive holder from Embellish 1122






painted Mason jars from Country Living at Heart








coffee cup cozy from Natalya's Studio






damask pillow cover from Nestables

tea towels from Orientina





key rack from Old New Again




set of serving bowls from Jampdx

I can't imagine myself painting a wall in this color, but I do think it adds a nice fresh burst of color when mixed with things you already have.  Would you agree?


Have you purchased anything in Radiant Orchid yet?
