Design in Mind: Pantone 2014 Color of the Year

You may remember our post about Emerald, the 2013 Pantone Color of the Year.

Well, good news. The 2014 color has been released: Radiant Orchid.

Purple. Hmm. We're not judging, but this may take a little getting used to because many people are very passionate, one way or another, about purple. Of course, in true Pantone style it is not just purple, it's sort of lavender, sort of fuchsia...guess that's why it's name is so magical, Radiant Orchid. And while you may not be sure of the color yet, some of the initial inspiration pics of the purple tone are actually very unique. Enjoy!


We are planning to paint the color below in a little girl's room in a home we are working on...pretty close to the new color of the year...maybe she might want to reconsider...
