Yes, I’m aware that everyone has been writing about the ‘Pantone Color of the Year’. But indulge me as I share my own expert opinion on the matter. By ‘expert’, I am mostly referring to the fact that I really really like color in general. Like, A LOT. See? Expert.

So I love the color. And not just because it won a hypothetical trophy, but because I have always had a thing for pinkish-purple. Proof: this post from 2012.

Now, I am currently ‘with-child’ for the second time (due in May) and for the second time a little gentleman will be joining our family. I am thrilled that we will have two little boys – truly I am. But I have always been a girly-girl. I love this orchid color but will obviously not be able to use it within the confines of my home due to all the testosterone… at least not as a sofa or wall color. Or anything of significant scale, really (boo). Perhaps I’ll save it for the day when I have my very own home studio. Look out boys, I assure you it’s going to be so feminine and precious that you will never want to enter.

Here are some of my FAVORITE uses of this lovely color:
