Colour of the Year: Radiant Orchid

Pantone has revealed 'Radiant Orchid' to be its Colour of the Year 2014.
Firstly, let me say Im thrilled for this shade - it's so gorgeous!
Its a very clever choice for Pantone to make,
as it would be perfect for the fashion and beauty industry, I can see this colour being incorporated in many future wedding parties, its strong yet feminine and would be fantastic in interiors and home decor.
I can just imagine product designers everywhere working with this beautiful colour for new designs to entice us all!

Radiant Orchid is an enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, it inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health.
It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”

  5. At first I wasn't so sure about it, probably because I was so over the moon about emerald green, which was last year's color, but now I like it!
