Radiant orchid is no shrinking violet in the grand color scheme of  primary or accent things.  I’m most excited to see color, radiant color, take its rightful place on the stage shared and paired with neutral palettes and the decorative darling duo,  black and white.  A hint, a splash or a pop of color often completes the look of the space, and bravo to that!

Blended shades of orchid complement the crackle finish of the Ty Orchid table lamp by Arteriors Home available from Lamps Plus.  Orchid is always in perfect company, complement and contrast to  pale gray.
