If you start to see a beautiful orchid color popping up everywhere, you may be seeing Pantone's Color of the year for 2014 - Radiant Orchid.
It is a mix of purples, pinks, and fuschias; and according to Pantone, "reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark imagination".
Pantone is a world renowned authority on color. For over a decade their influences in color have carried through to beauty, fashion, and interior decorating.
For the home they are recommending Radiant Orchid in paint, accent pieces, and accessories teaming it with olive, deep hunter greens, turquoise, teal, and light yellows. It can also be used to lighten up neutrals like gray, beige, and taupe.
