Confessions of an Interior Designer: Radiant Orchid

Enjoying the Journey: Confessions of an Interior Designer: Radiant Orchid
Dear Pantone,
As far as I am concerned your choice of Radiant Orchid for the color of the year could not be more perfect.  Once again, you never fail to amaze me and I absolutely agree with your life choices.  If you would have asked me six months ago what I thought the color of the year was going to be I would have said purple.  Personally, I was leaning towards a darker shade, but you all are the professionals and you proved me wrong with this perfect shade.

I asked this same question last year, and with no response I will ask it again.  Did Kate Middleton inspire the color of the year or did you all inspire her?  Either way, I am happy about it. 
In closing, I must thank you.  Not only do I like purple, but I love purple and you, Oh Pantone, have just given me an excuse to wear it all year long.  Okay, not like I wouldn't anyways, but it is now justified.  The possibilities are endless with Radiant Orchid and I cannot wait to start designing with it!  So thank you Pantone, for such a lovely choice!
Sincerely.
Lauren

Dear Readers,
Isn't Radiant Orchid great?  I mean come on, we all know you can never have enough purple in your life! 

As I was looking into who has been wearing orchid I came across this great article with many different looks and people, but to my surprise I knew one of the people photographed.  And as in know, I mean I may or may not stalk her in the blogging world.  If you scroll all the way down look at the center photo in the last grouping... it's Lisa Leonard.  I have mentioned her on here before and just love her style, and this finding made my day!

Once again I feel that I must reassure all of you that I have not lost my mind, and what might seem to be an obsession is just a deep love for color.  So what are you waiting for?  Go get you some Radiant Orchid and get your design on!

If you need me, I'll be rocking some Orchid!
-Lauren

Perhaps this is just my official proclamation of my true love for any shade of purple.  Perhaps Pantone really is a genius.  Or perhaps this is just a Confession of an Interior Designer.

Keep up with Enjoying the Journey
