Enhance the mood and set the tone of your house in 2019 by changing the color of your walls or adding color to your decor. Each year, the Pantone Color Institute names a Color of the Year that will be on trend in the months to come. The color they predict draws on influences such as the entertainment industry and areas of design. The color will start to appear in numerous products all around, so prepare yourself when redecorating especially if the color is not your style.

Have you heard of Radiant Orchid? If you haven’t yet, you definitely will! This striking combination of purple and pink is the 2014 Pantone Color of the Year. For interior design, this saturated hue of purple is best used as an accent color against neutrals such as a frosty white or a silvery grey. Here at Blinds & Designs serving San Francisco, our decorators can help find ways to incorporate Radiant Orchid into your home design. Here are just a few ideas:
