Pantone Colour of the Year - Radiant Orchid

Pantone have announced the colour of 2014- "Radiant Orchid" Initially you may be surprised  but when we look at the colour Radiant Orchid on the colour wheel it  sits between blue and red. Our new "it" colours.

Radiant Orchid  represents warmth, richness, luxury and power, purple has a magical, mysterious quality.

 It is a colour steeped in history and is traced back to many  plants found in our garden today; lavender, lilac, orchids and wisteria.

“While the 2013 color of the year, PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald, served as a symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity, Radiant Orchid reaches across the colour wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute® 

Making it the most magical colour for interiors.

Use it with neutrals to give impact and sophistication to a room. Or  decorate with colour and compliment  with greens, blues and pinks in home design and add a striking feature in any room.
