With the recent announcement of the new color of the year, Radiant Orchid, came lots of questioning regarding its application in the interiors. Some people even resisted the idea of ever using this color from Pantone on the same area.
Now for my living room, I wanted to make Radiant Orchid the main character of this area but didn’t want to scare my visitors with an overload of this color. To incorporate it on small quantities and almost in a “disguised” way, I made some pillow shams for my decorative cushions using different patterned fabrics from +Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores with a variety of hues similar to Radiant Orchid. I also recover my lampshade to go with my “new” decoration.
|For the lampshade I used the Eaton Square Sheila Peacock & Emerald available at Jo-Ann.|
The results were astonish and even my lonely corner was updated with a beautiful chair and lamp I found at +HomeGoods (ahemm… it was my husband who really found it for me…shhh don’t tell anyone!).
I’m so in love with this new color, I’m thinking on turning another room on a shrine for Pantone Radiant Orchid. Have you used this color in any room? If so, share with me your photos on my Facebook page. I’m leaving you with the list of the fabrics I used on my pillow shams. Most of them are from +HGTV fabric line on Jo-Ann.
