Spruce up your space with the color of the year

Spruce up your space with the color of the year

If you’re a retail owner, you may have heard the buzz about the shade that color experts at Pantone are predicting to be most popular this year. Yes, it’s Radiant Orchid – a perfect blend of violet and magenta tones that is both subtle and alluring. The color should be particularly popular as the weather warms up and winter melts into spring.

Although this transition may still be months away, it’s never too soon to start thinking about ways that you could incorporate Radiant Orchid into your store fixtures. Take some inspiration from Panton’s description of the hue:

“Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth … It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple – one that draws you in with its beguiling charm … Radiant Orchid emanates joy, love and health.”

If you’re looking for a quick fix of this fuchsia blend in your store, you might want to check out the C3 Custom Color collection, which allows you to get vibrant in a multitude of ways. Are you looking to update the mannequins in your store? Why not add one in Radiant Orchid? The color could appear particularly complementary when paired with similar models in a darker tone or black, for a sophisticated appeal. Alternately, let it inspire a bold color palette around your store this spring and opt for mannequins in similarly eye-catching shades, such as lemon yellow.

When you read the description of Radiant Orchid, what tone comes to mind? Many people probably associate the hue with a boutique feel – charming and sophisticated. Appropriately, the color corresponds perfectly with a number of boutique fixtures. Try pairing it next to a vintage necklace or shoe stand, or utilize it to complement a boutique stool in creamy pearl.
