                                        HUE GURUS....P A N T O N E!   The Color Institute! 

Every year...designer's around the globe...look to PANTONE for their 'color of the year'  go to!   This is the 'hue' which will make a statement and big SPLASH during the months ahead.  Usually, color hits the fashion scene and runway first;  then, typically it trickles down to home color environments.  What's the color for 2014?

                                                                                                                                  RADIANT ORCHID!

                                                                                                                     ...a color between fuchsia and violet...

"Using 'Radiant Orchid' as an accessory in your color scheme... is a perfect way to introduce it to your space.  Don't go overboard and use it for draperies or wallcoverings.  Flowery pinky purple....which this color is....can only be used in small doses to make it exciting and vibrant within your color scheme.  In a bathroom you could use towels of this color for an updated look....but not in the Master Bathroom.  The male in your life may cringe....if it's too predominant.  Mixing in a pillow with other patterns could be interesting....along with a floral arrangement in the orchid tone.  Just remember to keep a small scale in mind when purchasing.   No....don't even think about it for painted walls!!"

Triple sided vanity mirrors are not only a multi dimensional item of furniture but also provide a three way view for a better dressing experience.

Pairing a standing mirror with a desk/table to create a 'vanity' is hardly a new idea.  In fact, it's how the earliest designs were constructed.  It wasn't until the early 1730's that mirrors were built into dressing tables.
