Radiant Orchid decorations for Valentine’s Day.

You take this year’s Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid. Then you take this week’s holiday, Valentine’s Day. Put them together and you have the perfect excuse to add a pop of fresh color to your décor while trying out a new look in your home.

Depending on your desire for change and your home’s current style, you can add a little touch of Radiant Orchid or go for a more dramatic effect. The color is in the purple-pink family and goes well with neutrals, particularly creams, grays and taupe. Pantone also recommends combining Radiant Orchid with turquoise, teal, light yellow, and even darker greens such as olive and hunter green.

To update your home’s look in a subtle way with this year’s color, you could incorporate Valentine’s Day accessories in Radiant Orchid. Ideas include the following items in the color:

  • Flower arrangements, real or silk
  • Candle centerpiece
  • Lamps
  • Wall print
  • Throws
  • Pillows

If you’re artistic and like to make crafts, you can also create your own Valentine’s Day decorations. Here’s a beautiful wreath that you could make with your kids, substituting purplish-pink, white and patterned tissue paper for the red:

If you love Radiant Orchid and want a more dramatic effect, you could also consider painting an accent wall in your home the color.
