Pantone announces Radiant Orchid as the color of 2014

In case you haven’t already heard, Pantone announces Radiant Orchid as the color of 2014 and I’m sure we’ll be hearing more as time goes on as to people’s opinions.  Radiant Orchid, a warm, soft shade of purple with hints of pink. For those looking to add a radiant touch to their kitchen or bath remodel, here’s a number of solutions from a simple wall plate to an ultra luxurious, semiprecious stone surface.

Legrand’s adorne collection presents new design opportunities for the household light switch with 32 wall plate finishes—including Plum, seen here. The stylish hue adds a vibrant pop to the fundamental aspect of the home. The wall plate is paired with the Wave Switch, which activates the lights with the wave of a hand.

Prexury, the beautifully handcrafted semi-precious stone surface, from Cosentino, is an ideal statement piece for the kitchen or bath and sets a new standard of elegance and sophistication. Prexury offers three hues that coordinate with Radiant Orchid including Amethyst (shown), Rose Quartz and Classic Quartz. Prexury retails for $380-$440 per square foot.

Silestone, the leading natural quartz brand, comes in more than 70 colors, including Magenta Energy from the Life! Series — a bold collection of rich hues to enliven any kitchen or bath. Silestone Life! Series comes in a polished finish and multiple thicknesses, retailing for $62-$75 a square foot.

Shades of purple can present a peaceful, bathroom respite. Seen here, the haute hue sets the tone around the new Lawson bath from KOHLER’s Sterling brand. The tub mimics the shape of an ergonomic chair, from the gentle curves of the backrest to the large, rounded edges that cradle the neck and back. The tub can be used for deep soaking or with an air massage.

    There really are so many colors that can be combined with Radiant Orchid but for the most part, I think it’ll be a winner for a kids room. I’ve been choosing similar hues for a long time again, in kids rooms. Let me know if you have any questions about color or what will match. I also have a blog post you may want to read. It’s about decor that you can accessorize with this color and you can find it all at Lowe’s.
