Pantone Radiant Orchid – Part 2

Last week I talked about Radiant Orchid for interiors. Now I want to talk about Radiant Orchid in wedding decor. Purples are a great colour for weddings, there are so many types of different flowers that come in this shade and it’s not as girly as pink – so your fiancé would approve. It’s also a popular colour for weddings so there are tons of options for accessories, bridesmaid dresses and icing for that delicious cake!

Here are some of my favourite decor ideas in Radiant Orchid for weddings.

Pantone Radiant Orchid – Part 1

Every year Pantone comes out with the colour of the year. Emerald is out and Radiant Orchid is in!! I am not the biggest fan of purple but this colour is starting to grow on me. For interiors I think this colour would be perfect as an accent colour with whites and greys. If you are feeling bold though you could paint a room this colour.

Here are some great interior spaces that I think have successfully used Radiant Orchid.

Fall Trends: Jewel Tones

There are many trends for this upcoming Fall season but this is the last one of my Fall Trends posts! I say “upcoming” because it hasn’t quite started, even though the first official day of Fall is 2 days away. The weather has definitely started to change. When I’m getting dressed for work in the morning (which is at like 6am) it’s cold & cloudy but by mid afternoon it becomes warm & sunny. What the heck?! Oh right, this is Vancouver.

A trend that I love for Fall are pretty jewel tones like Teal & Berry/Oxblood! I actually just purchased a teal blouse & a berry long sleeve midi dress from H&M (on a side note, I’m become slightly obsessed with dresses & skirts in a midi length). It also happens that teal is one of my favourite colours – my #1 fav is purple. These colours are the perfect way to add that pop of colour to your Fall wardrobe which usually consists of neutrals like black, cognac & creme. They can also be worn all year round which is a great reason to pick up something in one of these fabulous colours!
