Right This Minute: Lavender Blooms

Alexandra Pauly

Pantone’s pick for 2014 color of the year? Radiant Orchid, a bright purple-pink. Not everyone can pull off a hue as vibrant as Pantone’s “it” color of the moment, so for a more subtle approach, opt for a pastel lavender. From your wardrobe to your home, lavender will add an unexpected, yet soft touch.
