Color Trend 2014: Radiant Orchid (15 Beautiful Exterior Doors)

Pantone has announced it's Color of the Year for 2014 and the winner is:
Radiant Orchid
I have to say that when they first announced it I was not thrilled with the idea with the color of a childhood dinosaur as the latest trendy color.   But now that I have had a chance to let it sink in, and after a little research on how to use it, I am convinced that ANYONE can incorporate this color into any style of home.   
A great example of how to use purple as high impact pop of color is on a front door. 

Using the original warm muted Radiant Orchid color as inspiration, but by changing the shade and tone, you can achieve nearly unlimited looks no matter which style house you have.
