Pantone, the world-renowned authority on color, has declared Radiant Orchid to be the color for 2014.
Radiant Orchid is a blend of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones and is just about the hottest color. The year 2013’s Emerald Green was also quite striking and while red, black and white are classics, there something special about Radiant Orchid.
When Pantone says the color will “intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,” they are not exaggerating.
“Radiant Orchidinspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health,” says Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.
Here are some ways you can incorporate the color in your lives:
What we must do first and foremost is incorporate the color in our wardrobes.
No need to overdo it though. The color is magnificent and will actually add to your attire if you mix and match:
Don’t be afraid to experiment; be bold. You are bound to look gorgeous.
And it just doesn’t have to be clothes.
And why should your laptop and phone feel left behind? After all, they are such a big part of your life.
MAKEUP AND HAIR
Makeup is all about the final product and making a statement. So if Radiant Orchid is the color for the year, don’t think twice about adding it to your pallet. Of course, the golden rule: don’t overdo it. What’s more, do not make the colossal mistake of wearing the same color of clothes and makeup. It will stand out much more if you balance your colors.
HOME & DECORE
It will be extremely refreshing to splash a bit of the ‘in’ color around the house and even on some special event.
And what about that special occasion you have been planning?
