Pantone’s Pretty Color of 2014: Radiant Orchid

This morning I was reading some Apartment Therapy, a home design site that I adore, and found out this year’s Pantone Color of the Year has been announced: Radiant Orchid! I think this is just the pop of color I’m craving in these chilly temps and I love thinking of ways to bring the color to home decor, fashion, even nail polish! Do you think you’ll take this year’s pick for a whirl?

Via Apartment Therapy: “Here we are again, color lovers. Another December, another Color of the Year announcement from the gurus at Pantone. For the first time in a few years, I feel like things are moving in a more unexpected, bold direction. If this 2014 pick is an indication of our colorful future, then I say, let’s go, bring it on!

According to Pantone, this color is “an enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones” that “inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health”.

I believe its going to work well for interiors. It is a color that coordinates beautifully with light yellows, and, the neutral of the moment, gray, as well as with pale, warm taupes, creamy whites and soft metallics, both silver and gold.

But, the designers and consumers ultimately decide the success of these color predictions, so I’d love to know what you think of Radiant Orchid – do you see it in your home design Magic 8 ball for the coming year or is it a ‘try again later’?”
