A few weeks ago, we revealed to you Pantone’s color of the year: Radiant Orchid, a really beauty with soothing and sophisticated undertones. Now, let’s talk about how to incorporate this spot-on trendy color purple into your home’s interior paint and home decor for 2014.
First, let’s address the elephant in the room? “Purple?!” you may be thinking. We get it–for some, purple is too bold given its inherent vividness. But, when you take a step back and consider that you don’t have to paint your home so it looks like a giant eggplant, you may have a better sense of how to work in purple hues in a way that’s sophisticated, warm, inviting and right on trend.
For instance, we recommend pairing a light shade of purple for one wall that’s accented by another wall done in a fabulously bold graphic print wallpaper in subtle tones of gray. Pair these two colors with some crisp, clean white furniture and finish off the room with a rug in a deep shade of purple and some gray and light purple accents and your room is sure to pop–in all the right ways!
Also, don’t think that you must paint the walls in radiant orchid or some variation thereof. Sure, it’s a great wall color, and Gold Painting Inc. sure is up for the job of adding a splash of it to your home or business’s interior walls, but we’re also at the ready to paint your walls in a striking neutral, like steel gray or taupe, which can easily be offset with those purple pops of color we keep talking about.
So, what’s the key takeaway here: Embrace trends in a way that suits your style, your decor and your personality. We’ll paint or wallpaper a room however you’d like, but we want you to be happy with the finished result. After all, it is you who will look at it and enjoy it for all of 2014 to come!
