Freshen Up Your Living Spaces with the 2014 Color of the Year
categories: Luxury Living, luxury real estate, Paradise Valley Living, Scottsdale Living

 Written by MLG Rockstar Ashlyn Rowe

ashlynFor all of you design followers out there, we know that every year Pantone, a world renowned company specializing in color selection, chooses a “Color of the Year.” Last year we welcomed the rich and unique color of Emerald. This year, Pantone has announced the 2014 Color of The Year, Radiant Orchid. “ Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination” says Pantone. In the summer months bright colors are sure to bring in a new vibe to your household and liven up any living space.  Pantone suggest the use of accent pieces, or removable/replaceable items to expose this brilliant color.

As seen on

Accent pillow, throw blankets, and even a freshly planted Orchid placed in the room can set a refreshing mood. The color, Radiant Orchid can be paired nicely with smokey grays, dark chocolates, vibrant yellows, and neutrals. Two other shades that peak an interest for this summer, are Luxe Linen and Sunny Side Yellow. The neutral tone that linen gives to a room is calm and serene. The rich neutral color gives an earthy vibe that is soft and soothing.

To create a bit more excitement and warmth in your household, add in those oranges and yellows to brighten up the space. Bring in blood orange to a crisp all white kitchen, and extend  color out doors placing yellow patterned pillows to create an elegant, fresh new surrounding.

So take time to reenergize your color palette and help provide a unifying element for each diverse space in your home this summer.
