2014 Pantone Color of the Year :: Radiant Orchid

You've probably heard by now, Pantone's 2014 Color of the Year has been announced!

Let's hear it for Radiant Orchid!


We love this collage by Sage + Sparkle, as it shows some of the many ways Radiant Orchid is popping up in our lives!

Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, describes the color as "an enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple, and pink undertones," and one that "inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love, and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm." She goes on to say, "an invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today's society" (quote via Pantone).

Confidence, warmth, joy, creativity…as if we didn't already love this color, we love the descriptors they use, and the rationale behind choosing this color this year!

Radiant Orchid combines so beautifully with so many colors…gold, pink, navy, even cognac. We especially love it with other shades of purple. Remember these table numbers we did for Ashley & Jake's wedding?

The purple table numbers with gold calligraphy look stunning against a backdrop of purple, pink, and radiant orchid flowers :)

There are so many ways to use this inspiring color! Now that you know our feelings about it, what do you think of 2014's Color of the Year? Will you be incorporating it into your parties, wardrobe, or home decor? We'd love to know!
