“While the 2013 color of the year, PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald, served as a symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity, Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society.” “An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”
Every year Pantone graces us with the highly anticipated color of the year. The 2014 color of the year is Radiant Orchid, so expect to see this vibrant pastel everywhere from home goods to fashion! I can’t wait to pair my Radiant Orchid pieces back to neutrals like dove grey, camel and white to really make the color POP! Or to wear them with an equally saturated and vibrant color like teal.
How do you imagine incorporating this new color into your 2014 life?
