Inspired by the colour of the year, I wanted to find a few examples of how to use purple at home. The purple of these products is pretty close to the one of Pantone's Radiant Orchid (although darker) and I just love how it pairs with grey. I think this is an especially tempting colour combination for the autumn 2014 here in the Southern Hemisphere! If you're in the Northern Hemisphere, however, you could go with the lighter shade of purple and combine it with pure white or turquoise/teal for a fresh spring look.
