Pantone's color of the year 'Radiant Orchid'



Pantone, recently picked Radiant Orchid, a purple hue with pink and fuchsia undertones, as the 2014 color of the year. Each year a color is selected by a secret committee that draws on global influences ranging from popular travel destinations to technology.

According to Pantone, next year's color is an invitation to innovation. 'Radiant Orchid' encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today's society.



The question for interior designers is how to inject this pinky-purple hue into interior spaces, without creating a "candy shop"? 


'Radiant Orchid' is a slightly difficult, more challenging color and quite controversial. 'Radiant Orchid' will start a discussion and has made people think about color in general. The good news is, that people today are more experimenting with color and that people get out of the bland, white/brown interiors and are not terrified to use color.
