Pantone Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid

Trends & Events

Gallery-Mood-Bannermain_banner-1We won’t claim to have predicted it, but, naturally, we’d like to think our October Autumn Trend feature (below) influenced Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year decision. Calling it a color that “emanates great joy, love and health,” the color authority has designated 18-3224, or, more explicitly, Radiant Orchid the hue of the moment, taking up the mantel from 2013’s Emerald. Not quite lavender, mauve, or violet, Radiant Orchid has a dose of pink and a dab of blue thrown in, but we’re not picky. We like purple in any shade—and by any name.purple1
