Pantone Selects Color of the Year

Pantone, the world’s leading color authority for 50 years announced the color of the year for 2014. The color is….

 Radiant Orchid

Pantone’s colors are not only important to commercial businesses for selecting the perfect hues for logos, banners, etc., but they are used in fabrics, fashion, decorating, paint colors, and even make up. Radiant Orchid (and all Pantone colors of the year) gets its own line at Sephora!

So why was Radiant Orchid selected as this year’s color? According to Pantone’s Executive Director, Leatrice Eisman,  ”Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health.”

Colors to wear with Radiant Orchid are lavender, purple, and pink. Complementary colors to Radiant Orchid are olive, green, teal, turquoise, and yellow. Radiant Orchid will give a pop to neutrals like grey and cream.
