2013’s color of the year, Emerald, may have been a bit easier to swallow for home decor.  I think this is going to be bit more difficult for everyone to embrace for obvious reasons.  I, for one, love how bright & optimistic orchid is & think it will make a great accent color.  It works well with the “it” color of the moment gray as well as creams, taupes, yellows, metallics & other brights.  In a neutral setting I think it will be a welcome pop of color.  In a more colorful setting I think it will give a luxe bohemian feel; especially with a printed textile …think Ikat, Kilim or Suzani.
