monday morning feng shui: use pantone's 2014 color of the year

oh my gosh, pantone made my day choosing the 2014 color of the year...radiant orchid.  radiant, check, orchid, check!  it is a vibrant purple with pink undertones.  pantone will give a more accurate description of this beautiful color, and can perhaps capture the right words to describe it. 

i will generously use this color in the wealth corner of my space and with any client needing to work on this area of their life.   paired with a dark, rich chocolate brown is my ideal vision.  here are some uses of this wonderful color.

having a swatch helps for matching complementary or contrasting colors. 
 i'd like to pair this ottoman with a rich, chocolate brown sofa and dark brown walls.

adding flowers in this shade are one of the simplest ways to incorporate this color into your space.  happy monday and happy ch'i, dana
