Radiant Orchid


The Pantone Color Institute has just introduced the new shades for Spring 2014. Leatrice Eisman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute says, “This season, consumers are looking for a state of thoughtful, emotional and artistic equilibrium.” We have fallen in love with shades of Radiant Orchid, and you can find it popping up in rugs and furnishings within our store. Pair this complementary color with neutrals and pops of Freesia for a cheerful space like these options seen here.

 Orchid & Yellow

Orange is not just for the fall. You can also pair Celosia Orange with this Radiant Orchid for an entertaining children’s space as well. This room is sure to inspire some creativity.


 Here at Rug & Home, we’ve got several options in home furnishings, rugs, and accessories to help you incorporate this color into your home. Use the following tips to begin incorporating this fun new color:

  • ·         Add fun lamps, vases, curtains, and even artwork to accent your space as well.
  • ·        Add some live greenery or some faux orchid plants to bring some life to your room.
  • ·         Be daring and paint an accent wall in Radiant Orchid.

Colorspiration: Paprika

HGTV just announced their color of the month – paprika – and we are ecstatic! It is a great pick, reflective of the lower fall temperatures and colors, and of the upcoming holidays and the delicious cooking we will all be engaged in. Here are some of our favorite paprika-colored selections:

Rugs are a great way to bring in this spiced color in any room of your choosing. The easy, yet vibrant color will lend itself to a family room, dining room, kitchen, media room, or game room. The hue can be more soothing with a striation or ombre effect or can add a real punch of color in rugs that showcase a more saturated version of the paprika hue. Checkout some of our design consultants top paprika rug picks:

Pillows and accessories are an easy way to try out this color in small doses. Add a couple of paprika-hued pillows to your neutral sofa to introduce this fall color scheme into your space. Or add several accessories – a few candle holders, a pretty vase, some ceramic containers, and a garden stool (which serves a functional purpose as well as extra seating for holiday guests and entertaining!) – to really enliven your interiors with this color palette without feeling like you have to fully financially commit.
