Pantone 2014 Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid


2013 was the year of Emerald. 2014 is the year of Lavender – Radiant Orchid to be precise. Why Radiant Orchard, you ask? Pantone describes its choose as:

“Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple — one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health.”

Personally, I’ve always had a propensity for rich color palette. With my skin tone, I brings out my smile and makes me stand out from the crowd. Radiant orchard can be easily incorporated in the home, makeup and apparel. Expect to see more of it in the year to come. What do you think? Did they pick a great color this year?
