Pantone’s Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid, is making waves in the interior design world thanks to its uniquely vibrant pinkish-purple hue. However, as previously mentioned, it can be a hard color to use, especially for those who are a bit more timid about using color in their homes. If you love it but need some help visualizing how to work it into your interior design, check out these 4 vastly different interiors using Radiant Orchid.

Elegant transitional

Transitional style is all about updating familiar traditional forms with a sleeker, more contemporary aesthetic, and Radiant Orchid is a great choice for adding some fresh energy into the mix. Paired with rich, dark woods and neutrals, the vibe is elegant and inviting.

Masculine luxury

Radiant Orchid definitely reads feminine at first glance, but sometimes mixing it up can yield surprising results when it comes to interior design. This luxe sitting area reads extremely masculine with dark navy, brass, leather, wood, menswear accents, and geometric detailing on the wall sconces and draperies, but the pops of Radiant Orchid are an important balance to the darker, more traditional materials.

Warm contemporary

The extensive use of warm woods is a popular contemporary interior design style, but all that wood can be monotonous without some other visual elements. This stunning dining room shows how a pop of bright color can work wonders in a warm wood interior. The yellowish undertones of the wood make it a complement of Radiant Orchid, which lies on the opposite side of the color wheel.

Feminine Glamor

This ultra feminine room may be closer to what most people associate with a color like Radiant Orchid, but as we’ve shown, it all comes down to approach. This space embraces the glamorous femininity of the color full-force, accentuating it with metallic finishes, mirrored decor, a crystal chandelier, and coordinating textiles.
