Radiant Orchid - Pantone's Colour of the Year for 2014

Here it is. The colour we have been waiting for... Radiant Orchid.

According to colour guru, Leatrice Eiseman from Pantone, Radiant Orchid is “an enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.”

Certainly purple has been a hot trending colour over the last few years. This shade is bright and vibrant and will add life to our neutral homes of grey and taupes.

Purple is not my favourite colour but I do love orchids in all hues and shades. Their beauty and elegance is stunning and adds life to a room.

Pantone's colour of the year really drives product design in fashion, beauty and the home. In décor, watch for purple accessories to instantly be everywhere. A purple pillow or vase will update your décor so you too can be right on trend. I also see orchids blooming everywhere - and not just the plant itself. Watch for orchid wall art, as a pattern on pillows and fabric and more.


Bring on the purple. Radian Orchid is sure to brighten your day!
