Pantone’s Colour of the Year – mid year review
At the start of the year, we featured the new Pantone ‘Colour of the Year’: Radiant Orchid. Now, halfway through 2014, we’re interested to see how this statement colour has taken off around the world.
The colour authority describes Radiant Orchid, as ‘an enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones” that “inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health.’ But has it really inspired?
In short, yes.
There are Etsy shops inspired by the colour, blog posts dedicated to it and Instagram posts referencing it. Offline, Radiant Orchid has confidently made its way into tile collections, fabric releases and homewares lines (not to mention the trend of purple hair!).
Take a look…
