We'll Never Be Royals....Pantone Color of the Year

Hey....I'm hip.  Did you get the lyrics from "Royals by Lorde"?  Well it's not exactly a royal purple, it's Radiant Orchid to be exact. The PANTONE of the the year. And I have to say.....it's about time.  Even as a wee little "birdie" in my momma's nest, I have been in love with purple!  I know it's hard to believe since all I ever talk about is.....aqua, AQUA, aQuA!  I still do my best to sneak it in whenever I can.

Wanted to share this amazing news with you. Especially now when we are all freezing, snowed/iced in.  There's nothing like a bright cheerful color to liven up your day.  So take a minute...look/then close your eyes, hehehehe, an dream of lovely blooms and warmer days.








You may not want to jump into the pool head first, but there are a number of ways that you can bring this fabulous color into your home.  Think accessories!!!! Pillows, ottomans, throws, votives/candles, art....just to think of a few ideas.  Don't be afraid! Dip your toes into the color pool and enjoy!

I'd love to know what you think!!  

Have a good one,
Robin
