Colour of 2014

16 12 2013

I’ve just discovered that Pantone nominate the “it-colour” for the coming year.
Interesting; I like this.

The colour for 2014 has been named as: ‘Radiant Orchid‘ or officially 18-3224.

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
