Pantone colour of the Year 2014, Radiant Orchid – Styling Inspiration

Today I am thrilled to welcome back to the Blog to discuss the Pantone colour of the Year 2014, Radiant Orchid.

I recently featured the UK Academy of Wedding and Event planning who created a series of Moodboards to cover a rainbow of colour.

Now following the announcement of the Pantone colour of the Year 2014 they once again share some moodboards to compliment this beautiful shade.

“When Pantone, the colour authority, announced the Colour of the Year for 2014 many were surprised as they had predicted it would be Dazzling Blue.”

“But I have to say we here at the Academy are delighted to say that it is a captivating, magical, enigmatic purple called Radiant Orchid.”

“It is the perfect colour to incorporate in a bouquet and definitely one I think we will see appear as the colour of choice for bridesmaids dresses and groomsman’s ties.”

“It has a lush sophisticated feel to it that gives it so much more depth than just a plain pink or purple, which are usually thought of as girly colours.”

“This colour packs a punch and can be paired with many different colours to highlight the different seasons.”

“An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health.”

“It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

“Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination.”
