Introducing Pantone's Color of the Year-- the beautiful Radiant Orchid! I think this is a GORGEOUS color. I'm so excited to start pairing it up with other colors, especially bold colors that can make this delicate shade really POP! This is one versatile and exciting color to work with.
It's also a bold departure from 2013's Color of the Year, Emerald. Emerald is stately, sedate, glamorous, and rich. With Radiant Orchid, we can feel like spring's just around the corner. It's also going to be a great color to use in more delicate, romantic combos-- the other colors in the Spring palette will pair with this one wonderfully.
What does Pantone have to say about their 2014 pick? "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."
