2014 Color of the Year
Radiant Orchid… Have you ever heard of it? Me either.. But Pantone has announced that it is the color of the year for 2014. According to Pantone’s Leatrice Eiseman, Radiant Orchid is “one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health.”
While I don’t predict we’ll see professional sports teams incorporating this color into their brand anytime soon, you can be sure that you will see this color in the fashion world as well as your local paint store soon.
For the record, Radiant Orchid is listed as PMS 18-3224.
