Pantone has just announced the color of the year – stunning and vibrant, radiant orchid. It’s hard not to get excited thinking about the infinite possibilities of experimenting with this color. You could mix it with rich jewel tones for a bold look, or soften it up with neutrals and muted hues. Over the holiday season, make the color pop with gold or silver jewelry. Consider even putting an unexpected color with it, like bright orange.
