Pantone Reveals the Color of 2014

Emerald is so 2013

It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for (drumroll, please) — Pantone has officially announced their color of 2014.

Radiant orchid is described as “a captivating, magical, enigmatic purple.” Here’s what Pantone had to say about working the color into your home:

“Spruce up spaces by incorporating this eye-catching hue in paint, accent pieces and accessories. As adaptable as it is beautiful, Radiant Orchid complements olive and deeper hunter greens, and offers a gorgeous combination when paired with turquoise, teal and even light yellows.

Likewise, the vibrant color is sure to liven up neutrals including gray, beige and taupe. Uplifting and bold without being overpowering, Radiant Orchid reenergizes almost any color palette and provides a unifying element for diverse spaces.”
