BLOOM: Spring Flowers Inspired by Radiant Orchid

Spring Flowers inspired by Radiant Orchid via homework | carolynshomework.comA few days before Easter, my mom gave me these gorgeous purple tulips. And before I went to her house on Easter, I picked up this pretty bouquet of white and purple flowers for her.

Spring Flowers inspired by Radiant Orchid via homework | carolynshomework.comI’m pretty sure my mom has never heard of Pantone or the fact that they have a color of the year.


Spring Flowers inspired by Radiant Orchid via homework | carolynshomework.comBefore Easter, the tulips she gave me and the bouquet I was taking to her house were on my table and I snapped up a bunch of photos since it all looked so pretty.

Spring Flowers inspired by Radiant Orchid via homework | carolynshomework.comYes, Radiant Orchid is definitely making it’s way into my d├ęcor. But in subtle ways. Do you like purple? Have you incorporated it into your house?


Thanks for visiting my little corner of the creative world.

  1. Yes, I love purple and use it (lots of different shades) as an accent color everywhere in my home. I have white walls so it's not overpowering. I bought a stencil a few years ago and can't seem to find a soft shade of purple to use with it. I think radiant orchid is a bit loud for a large wall area but works well as an accent like the flowers you put together.
