Pantone colour Radiant Orchid

According to Pantone, this is how we can use Radiant Orchid in interiors:

Spruce up interior spaces by incorporating this eye-catching hue in paint, accent pieces and accessories. As adaptable as it is beautiful, Radiant Orchid complements olive and deeper hunter greens, and offers a gorgeous combination when paired with turquoise, teal and even light yellows.

Likewise, the vibrant color is sure to liven up neutrals including gray, beige and taupe. Uplifting and bold without being overpowering, Radiant Orchid reenergizes almost any color palette and provides a unifying element for diverse spaces.

So what do you think?  Will you be incorporating some radiant orchid into your DIY Decorating in 2014?  Look out for accessories in this colour as they work their way into our shops next year.
