Pantone, the global authority on colour trends, announced PANTONE® 18-3224 Radiant Orchid, a captivating, magical, enigmatic purple, as the color of the year for 2014.

This captivating purple encourages creativity and originality. It inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. Radiant Orchid complements olive and deep hunter greens, and offers a gorgeous combination when paired with turquoise, teal and even light yellows.

The vibrant color will liven up neutrals including gray, beige and taupe. Uplifting and bold without being overpowering, Radiant Orchid energizes almost any color palette and provides a unifying element for diverse spaces.


It is not a colour for everyone. However, used strategically, it will add a sophisticated pop in your decor. It's a natural complement to medium grey and charcoal.
