Global colour authority, Pantone, has revealed its Colour of the Year 2014 – the eye-catching purple shade of Pantone 18-3224 Radiant Orchid. As adaptable as it is attractive, Radiant Orchid is an ideal hue for paint, accent pieces and accessories.
The shade complements olive and deeper hunter greens, and offers a distinctive combination when paired with turquoise, teal and light yellow. Furthermore, the vibrant colour livens up neutrals including grey, beige and taupe. Uplifting and bold without being overpowering, Radiant Orchid re-energises almost any colour palette and provides a unifying element for diverse spaces.
For more than a decade, Pantone’s Colour of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries, including interior, fashion and industrial design, as well as product packaging and graphic design.
