Fashion and design circles are buzzing with the Pantone Institute’s choice for 2014’s color of the year. Known as the “global color authority,” Pantone routinely identifies the hot hues on the horizon after surveying the use of color in a wide range of industries.
I just love 2014’s pick: “Radiant Orchid.” Pantone describes the color as “captivating,” “magical,” and “enigmatic”; I think it’s chic, fun, bold, and feminine. It’s also extremely versatile, which is immediately apparent after even a quick glance at some of the inspiring mood boards dedicated to this pinky-purple hue.
Here are some of my favorite inspirations that feature Radiant Orchid in fashion, décor, makeup, and even food. Enjoy!
