Mood Board Monday | Radiant Orchid

Welcome to the first Mood Board Monday for 2014...and what better way to kick of the new year, than with Pantone's colour for 2014 "Radiant Orchid"!

According to Pantone, Radiant Orchid "blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple - one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuschia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health".

With a write-up like that, how can you not fall in love with it?

I know purple isn't usually a colour people embrace, but I think there's room for a little "Radiant Orchid" in your every day life. Here's a few images that might change your mind...
  1. Radiant Orchid themed events will be all over pinterest this season, and this gorgeous 4-tiered handpainted cake by Three Little Blackbirds would be the perfect jumping off point.
  2. This sweet "home is where the heart is" print by etsy seller MossyJojo is just darling, and the perfect pop of colour for any room.
  3. Try adding a small touch of Radiant Orchid to your outfit, with the statement paper bead necklace by etsy seller PurpleSmoothie.
  4. The benefit of having a neutral bedroom is that you can add any colour you like! This paper medallion print duvet cover (available from Urban Outfitters) would brighten up an room, and is a small invest for a major jolt of this year's hot colour.
  5. Why settle for a boring stainless steel kettle, when you can add a hit of purple with this number by Kenwood. (available from Domayne)
  6. Commit to Radiant Orchid in a big way by upholstering a set of statement chairs, such as these featured in Elle Decor. The icey green accents are the perfect accompaniment to this colour scheme.
  7. This breakfast set (available from Domayne) will surely add a smile to your face each morning.
  8. Radiant Orchid isn't just for the home. Learn how to apply this year's hottest colour to your eyes with this tutorial by blogger, Snobka.
  9. Go big or go home, with this wallpaper mural from Brewster Home Fashions. Pick a feature wall, and go for it! The colours of this mural will make your neutral lounge pop!
