Color of 2014: Radiant Orchid

Pantone announced today that Radiant Orchid is the new color of the year for 2014! Bye-bye Emerald, there is a new hue in town!

It is not surprising that a sweet shade of purple would be the color of 2014. The spring 2014 runways in New York showed us a plethora of blue and purple shades. The blues and purples were in varying hues ranging from pastel to almost bright, yet vivid shades. Radiant Orchid is the perfect shade of purple since it borders lavender yet retains the richness of a soft purple. Love it!

The color of 2014, Radiant Orchid, will play well with almost any shade of blue; as well as blend with other purple or lavender hues. This is definitely a beautiful color to invest in for 2014 as it offers a fresh place on the color wheel after a couple of years of bright and neon colors.

What do you think of Pantone’s color of the year for 2014; Radiant Orchid? Will you be wearing this pretty hue?
