Pantone Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid


When Pantone releases their new color of the year, designers, planners, color enthusiasts, decorators and all those who have an interest in the creative industry tend to sit up and listen. This year's new pick, Radiant Orchid, is the prettiest or purples, almost a bright lilac shade with a hint of pink.

Something tells me that there is a slim chance newly engaged ladies and gents plan to order up a radiant orchid wedding. I do foresee growth in a the purple category as a whole, bringing back gorgeous shades of plum, ombre details spanning from light lavender to deep blackberry.

The color, when on its own, leans a bit on the feminine side. Paired with a deep gray, midnight navy, even hunter green, would bring the overall color theme back to a more neutral place.

So! New brides to be, hostesses, and fashionable types - how will you incorporate radiant orchid into your life in 2014?
