Thoughts on Color of the Year…

Hi all! Hope your weekend was fabulous. We ended up with a snow day on Friday…gotta love a long weekend in December:) A little moodboard to start off the week….

Pantone released the color of the year for 2014. I gotta say….it is not my favorite color of the year ever. Not a fan of purple…or plum…or orchid. It is such a cool color and I think it is kind of hard to warm up without looking “80’s”. But I thought I would give it a go….

I don’t mind it as much when it is paired with gray and gold…and even little pops of silver. This space would be great for a young ladies first apartment or maybe fancy dorm room:) I just think it would be hard to “man” this color up….what do you think? How do you feel about the color of the year?

  1. I agree with you that it’s not my favorite color either. But purple is my daughter’s favorite color and I found a way to incorporate it into her room that looks soooo nice, so we are both happy. When I looked at your mood board it actually reminded me of Marie’s house (Walt’s sister-in-law) in Breaking Bad. If you watch the show, you’ll know what I mean. And if you don’t, then none of this will make any sense….LOL

    1. I need to start watching that show!! Everyone tells me how good it is! :) I am sure your daughter’s room is adorable!

  2. I find purple adds a nice pop to the rooms I use it in!
