New year, new colour


Pantone’s colour of 2014 is Radiant Orchid; a soft, vibrant purple.. As an early teenager I was allowed to decorate my bedroom as I wished & I chose lilac paint for three of the walls & a very dark moody purple for the other wall…not to everyone’s taste I admit & I would’nt want to live with it now but I loved that room & have fond memories of it, especially as it was a creation of my own.  From the softest lilac to the deepest shade, purple can be a great accent colour for cushions, tiebacks & lampshades.  So if you want to add one burst of colour to enliven & update your neutral scheme why not consider purple or one of the other lovely shades above which are so on trend for the new year.
