Radiant Orchid

I'm so excited to be sharing a fun project today with some of my favorite bloggers!  We all worked on a project centered around radiant orchid, the color of the year.  
From top left moving clockwise: 
1. Flower Pots from Dimples and Tangles  2. Secretary Desk from Cuckoo4Design  3. Abstract Art from Retro Ranch Renovation  4. Basket from The Chronicles of Home  5. Painted Tray from Dwellings by Devore  6. Cross Stitched Jewelry Organizer from Primitive and Proper
I know radiant orchid hasn't been the most popular color of the year, but I really like it.  I probably wouldn't paint a whole room that color, but I think it's a great accent color in small doses.  My office is lavender with accents of pink and orange so I thought that would be the perfect place to throw in a little radiant orchid.    

I started with this tray that I found at Goodwill.  I see them there all the time.  Then I just picked up a sample pot of radiant orchid from Lowe's.  A little goes a long way so I have a bunch leftover for other projects.   


I really like the way this color pops against my white desk and the tray is great for keeping things a little more organized.






What do you think about radiant orchid?  Would you use it in your home?  Be sure to check out the other projects through the links at the top of the post!

Radiant orchid can certainly infuse a space with energy and happiness even when used super-sparingly ... your tray is a great example. I agree about how far the Pantone sample pot goes (which other paint companies made their sample pots that large and in an easily resealable container :) I recently freshened up (painted) a linen art matt using the sample pot and I have so much left .... plenty for more projects. And that paint is very thick and pigment rich, just saying'.

What a fun idea and such a great way to work in a new color. The tray looks fab!!

I love this use of the color! Perfect for a tray - makes it a bold piece but it doesn't dominate anything around it. Perfect!

Perfect punch of color for spring - your tray is super cute!

We used these trays growing up and I have one at home now and I think you've convinced me to paint it! Great idea and love how you used the color!

Thanks Cassie! Loved your radiant orchid project too!

Thanks Rachel! Someone gave me that little bowl a long time ago and I'm so glad I finally found a use for it!

I agree! I was so surprised at how well it covered. It was my first time using their paint but I may just have to try out a few more colors!

Thanks Julia! I'm always a sucker for the pretty flowers at Trader Joe's. They're so pretty and inexpensive!

Beautiful! I love how you styled it. It's not my favorite color, but I do like it in doses just like this!
