It’s here! Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2014!
“Radiant Orchid” is a lively blur of pinky purple that liven up any room, outfit, or garden! It’s a hue that would look great in a summer lipstick, glass vase or as a flower border. This color plays well in a casual or formal application.
While pinky/purple may not be for everyone, it can serve as a focal color or a nice accent to many other shades. Do you plan to incorporate this color in your garden this spring? Or are you going to use it immediately now with a new throw pillow or shade of blush?
I'm loving this color! However, I don't think I have the chutzpah to pull it off inside or outside my home.
I leave this to the color mavens.
Chutzpah is overrated. lol
Finally! One of my favorite colors is in garden fashion! I used to wear this in my 20s but I feel is too much for clothing but not too much in the garden. I already have the Poppy Mallow or Winecups and this fall alone I added the Pow Wow Echinacea and Achillea "Saucy Reduction! Can't wait for summer!
So, I already am using this color in my perennial beds, and would like to find a couple of larger containers that are a slightly darker form of this color - but can't find 'plum' or 'orchid' containers anywhere - anybody seen some?
