Pretty purples for spring

Pretty purples for spring

Although you've known that Radiant Orchid has been named Pantone's "Color of the Year" for a few months now, the blah winter weather probably hasn't inspired you to decorate with this dazzling hue. Now that it's finally spring, it's the perfect time to bring pretty shades of purple into your home. Do you love this color, but are unsure how to make it work in your New York space? Take a look at some helpful suggestions below:

  • Chic accents: "A creative mix of small accent pieces in this daring shade is a sure way to bring Radiant Orchid's beautiful tones to a space without going overboard," reports a blogger for HGTV. "If you want to add the latest color simply update your table lamps or lampshades. Add a pillow, throw or vase to your home decor," Manja Swanson, chief creative officer of Lamps Plus, tells the source.
  • Curtains and drapes: Purple curtains and drapes will look exquisite in nearly every room in your home. For your daughter's bedroom, opt for a light pastel shade. Deeper hues will look ideal in your dinning room or living room.
  • DIY furniture: Believe it or not, purple furniture can be oh-so chic. If you don't own a purple piece, you can always head to your local paint shop for a trendy DIY project. Give your dresser or end table a brand new look!
