Pantone Color of the Year for 2014

by Lisa Stewart 11 Jan 2014

A captivating, magical, enigmatic purple is the color of the year for 2014.  PANTONE® 18-3224 Radiant Orchid, an enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones inspires confidence and sparks the imagination. Orchid encourages expanded creativity, joy, love and health.

Intriguing the eye, this vibrant color is sure to liven up neutrals including gray, beige and taupe. Uplifting and bold without being overpowering, Radiant Orchid reenergizes almost any color palette and provides a unifying element for diverse spaces. One of my clients used this color in her master closet. It created a comfortable chic feel when paired with neutral colors, mirrors, silver and gold finishes. Perfect!
