Your New Color: 18-32-24

Pantone, the high priest/corporation of color, has announced the color of the year for 2014: Radiant Orchid (Pantone No. 18-32-24). They began selecting “colors of the year” in 2000, and purportedly try to pick something that reflects world trends in color usage. Radiant Orchid made the grade this year because it “reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination…Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society. 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.” If you are feeling drawn in by its beguiling charm, check out some complementary palettes here.
