Bring Radiant Orchid into Your Home with GreenBox Art

December 17, 2013 / Design Tips

Since Pantone’s recent Color of the Year announcement, we’d like to welcome Radiant Orchid to the stage, as it has become the most influential color regarded by Pantone for the year 2014. Here are Pantone’s expectations for the enigmatic color’s role in our interiors:

Radiant Orchid for Interiors
Spruce up interior spaces by incorporating this eye-catching hue in paint, accent pieces and accessories. As adaptable as it is beautiful, Radiant Orchid complements olive and deeper hunter greens, and offers a gorgeous combination when paired with turquoise, teal and even light yellows. Likewise, the vibrant color is sure to liven up neutrals including gray, beige and taupe. Uplifting and bold without being overpowering, Radiant Orchid reenergizes almost any color palette and provides a unifying element for diverse spaces. 

So, we’re here to help bring Radiant Orchid into your surroundings, as a symbol of “growth, renewal, and prosperity” as suggested by Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®.

Whether you’re looking for a swathe or a smattering of Radiant Orchid to enliven your décor, we’ve got a style just for you! Each of these selections by unique artists can easily be paired with coordinating artwork and are available in multiple size options, so that you may make a piece a focal point of the room, or part of a larger grouping.

Here you see a few of our modern artwork selections with a little or a lot of Radiant Orchid. Note each piece listed below in clockwise order starting from the top right: Forest Owl Birch by Eleanor Grosch. Crassissimus by Lisa DeJohn. Pink and Orange by Sally Bennett. Greek Key – Lavender by GreenBox House. Carnival Klimt by Flora Bowley & Jennifer Mercede. Erector Set by Marie Kazalia.


If artwork in a more painterly style is what speaks to you, see a few of our gorgeous selections centered around Radiant Orchid originally painted by different, incredible artists. Artwork listed in clockwise order from the top right: Floral Bouquet Lavender by Angelo Franco. Ballerina Ensemble by Kristina Bass-Bailey. Brown Bunnies Jumping Over Gold Mountain by Eli Halpin. Violet Haze by Deborah Brenner. Just After Sunset by Petite Malou.



Another fitting décor option was mapped out in our recent Gallery Walls with GreenBox Art Prints blog, featuring a Garnet and Gold gallery. The inspiration image we featured from Apartment Therapy highlighted a stunning focal wall in a shade of Radiant Orchid, accented by artwork in splashes of Pantone’s suggested complementing colors: olive greens, light yellows, beige, taupe, along with deeper purples and garnet to intensify the Radiant Orchid tones.
