I’ve been frantically pacing my office waiting for Pantone to announce their 2014 colour of the year, and today I can finally sit down. The official colour for 2014 is …….. PANTONE 18-3224 Radiant Orchid. So what is it about this purple hue that has won over the most credible authority in colour?
An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.
I am glad to see they didn’t just go down the hole “purple means sexual frustration” route. I mean, do we want an entire year of sexual frustration? No, thanks!
As always we will be endeavouring to compile the absolute essential hit-list of Radiant Orchid buys, just as we have done in the past (remember Emerald in 2013?). We will be hunting down beauty, fashion, lifestyle, home and anything else that will bring this joyous colour into your life.
For now, here are some preliminary findings in the search for Radiant Orchid.
