Color of 2014: Radiant Orchid

img-thing

The color of the year, according to the color gods at Pantone, is supposedly an inspiration for designer’s fashion collections[including interior designs and decor] and reflects the state of the economy? For example, if it were a yellow, we consumers need a pick me up. I think it’s a bit of a crock because I don’t remember seeing a ton of emerald last year..or maybe I missed it because I wasn’t shopping in Neiman Marcus or Barney’s? I saw a lot of neon green [maybe because it’s so dang bright lol..] and celestial/outer space prints.

Anyway, this year it’s radiant orchid- a beautiful, bold and bright pinkish purple hue. I’m not sure how/if it reflects our financial state, but it sure is pretty!

Ahem, I’m ahead of the trend, already incorporating this color into my life with fresh flowers in my apartment, lipstick and nail varnish. Where has Pantone been?!
