Color of the Year
According to Pantone, the global guardian of colour, Radiant Orchid is the official color of the year.
They say… 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.

Blue Bites Beige
Say bye-bye to beige and hello to blue! Radiant orchid might be the official color of 2014, but interior designers are loving the blue hues. Cobalt, turquoise, peacock, navy and light blues will all reign supreme this year, says blogger Paloma Contrera of ladolvevitablog.com.
They say… From rich, saturated colors like navy and indigo to bright, vibrant shades like peacock blue and cobalt, blue will continue to reign supreme in the coming year.
We say… recreate this opulent palette with more practical accented and styled walls, but neutral sofas.
Trade your pasty pastels for darker boudoir walls such as black, grey or dark navy.
They say… In 2014 we’ll be seeing rooms with a lot more drama and glamour. Dark, moody walls in black will be the perfect backdrop to the metallic accessories that we’re all loving right now.
We say… Accent dark walls and clean modern furniture with on-trend metallic accents (mirrors, chairs, candle sticks) and dress with lighter fabrics that will pop!
Lighten the Load
Dark woods are timeless, but lighter grains are all in vogue for 2014.
They say… We are all looking forward to some warmer temperatures.. So why not prepare for it with lighter furniture pieces. Chestnut, walnut and oak are the favourites this season.
