Color Crush: Radiant Orchid

Last week Pantone revealed the Color of the Year for 2014, Radiant Orchid! 

"An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today's society"said Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

You can spruce up interior spaces by incorporating this hue in paint, accent pieces and accessories. Radiant Orchid compliments olive and deeper hunter greens, and offers a gorgeous combination when paired with turquoise, teal and even light yellows. Similarly, this color can liven up up neutrals including gray, beige and taupe.


The color of the year requires careful consideration and, to arrive at the selection, Pantone quite literally combs the wold looking for color influences. This can include the entertainment industry and films that are in production, traveling art collections, hot new artists, popular travel destinations and other socio-economic conditions. Influences may also stem from technology, availability of new textures and effects that impact color, and even upcoming sports events that capture worldwide attention.
