Introducing Pantone’s colour of the year – Radiant Orchid…

‘Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health.’ (Source – Pantone: http://www.pantone.co.uk/pages/index.aspx?pg=21129)

This colour may not to be everybody’s taste; I myself took a while to adjust to this strong colour but have found using it within different elements of a room can really bring a space to life. Try the Radiant Orchid with a turquoise or teal to bring a dramatic, bold new look to an interior. This colour is set to be a very popular trend within fashion, beauty and interiors in 2014 so whether it is a splash of colour on the walls, new accessories or simply an new orchid flower for your home, this is the colour to invest in this year.

Pantone’s colour of the year for 2013 is Emerald Green. A more classic colour than the 2012 colour, Tangerine Tango which popped up quite a lot and adapted to the years interior trend of orange. I wonder how popular and influential Emerald Green will be in 2013?
