Pantone Color of the Year 2014

*This is a sponsored post on behalf of Lowe’s, however all opinions and statements are my own.

The Lowe’s Creative Bloggers were challenged to use Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2014 in a project.  The Pantone Color of the Year is Radiant Orchid.  Now…I LOVED the color, but for the life of me couldn’t find a way to incorporate it into my current home décor color scheme.  I thought of several things I could make…just to make…but I really don’t like to make something that I am not going to really use…or have to repaint.


So, I decided to add the color in my daughter’s room with some fun accent pieces.  I simply painted some mason jar lid rings with Radiant Orchid paint (which you can pick up at Lowes).  Then I filled the jars with some colored pencils and school supplies that she can use when she is creating at her desk or working on her homework.


I also made a little wooden bead necklace and then painted it with the bright and fun paint.  I really LOVE this and love that it made my daughter so happy.  She can use it as a fun colorful pop of color for her room when she is not wearing it too.


I love that the color is so bright and fun.  It makes me feel like #SpringIsCalling.  What about you?  How do you feel about the Pantone Color of the Year—Radiant Orchid?  Do you love it?  What would you use this paint color on?

    i love the color, but I don’t know where I would use it my home. It doesn’t really go with anything. Love what you did with it in your daughter’s room.
