The true beauty of 2014′s color of the year is its versatility in any room of the home.


It coordinates with this year’s new neutral–gray, and makes for a perfect accent color whether its an accessory for an occasional table or a brand new rug that will really make a statement this year.

While it’s a beautiful color, for many it is a color that may be enjoyable for only a year or less. Introduce orchid in small ways to any room in your home, and you will brighten up the space with a pop of color. Be carful when pairing it with other bold colors as it works best with neutral shades. A great way to introduce color is with decorative pillows or accent chairs. Orchid is beautiful with creams and tans and of course it’s fabulous with the new neutral—gray.
