By now, we all know that Pantone's color of the year for 2014 is Radiant Orchid. This gorgeous color will be featured in a subsequent post. For now, I'd like to talk a little about Blush, the palest of pinks. This color was immensely popular in 2013, especially when paired with gray - (see my favorite color scheme for 2013 here). Blush is a very versatile color. It looks great paired with wood or metallics. It's perfect for a soft pastel room. It also looks great with pops of bright colors such as yellow and hot pink. I predict blush will continue to be very popular in 2014.
Blush curtains look fabulous with coral bedding and a hint of gray from the throw. Love the pale blue chair. Crate and Barrel.

I love pale pink with pale blue. Gorgeous sofa, rug, vase and lampshade! This is definitely not the pastels of the 80s. Style by Marianne Luning for vtwonen.
I read that accent walls will no longer be a trend in 2014, but I don't believe it! It's a great way to add color to a room. I love the way they have blocked the gray over two walls in this room. Not ready to paint a wall? It's easy to change a room on a whim by adding accessories. Here's a few that will work nicely and in a blush room, or to just add a little flavor of blush.
