Pantone’s Radiant Color of the Year 2014
Well Emerald, it’s been fun but it’s high time you get to stepping. Pantone has announced their 2014 Color of the Year and it’s none other than Radiant Orchid. According to Pantone: “An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”
Radiant Orchid is fabulously feminine which may actually pose more of a challenge to designers who try to incorporate it into their work. Last year’s winner, Emerald, was incredibly versatile despite its bold intensity, appearing in everything from fashion to home decor and beyond. The girlish charm of Radiant Orchid may limit its use to industries like fashion and cosmetics but it will definitely be exciting to see how designers incorporate it throughout other fields.
