  1. The radiant orchid is not my favorite for permanent surfaces – tile, large expanses of wood paneling as I think the color is too trendy. BUT, I do love the radiant color pop with pillows, rugs or even the fun kitchen chairs. These can easily be changed out once the color gets old! Lovely images. Thanks for sharing!


  2. I love how vivid it is!! It plays well with darks & lights – it’s perfect!!! So love this color of the year! Happy Happy Color.

  4. Purple is my favorite color but I don’t know that I could talk my husband into all these accents…

  5. Jean Stringfellow says:

    Well, Shirley would certainly embrace this color!

  6. Love the colors! Thanks for sharing!

  7. I think it is lovely for a pop of color, but I also think it is trendy. I wouldn’t spend too much time and money embracing it.

  8. I’ve wondered how in the world I could incorporate purple into anything in my home. This pantone selection threw me off! But I love all of these ideas. Thanks Jen!

  9. Wow, I’m in LOVE with that patio from Homes. I could live out there all day long!

    While the color probably isn’t something I’d use personally, it’s lovely and obvious other people know how to rock it in their spaces!
