The 2014 Color of the Year is Here!

Pantone, the global authority on color (as if you didn't already know), has announced the 2014 Color of the Year.  Radiant Orchid is quite the opposite of last year's Emerald Green, and will be a nice change.  The color is both calming and inspiring - Pantone says:
"Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society.  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."  

I currently cannot think of anything remotely Emerald that I purchased last year, but Pantone's Color of the Year influences the design and purchasing decisions in multiple industries, including fashion, home decor, and industrial design... not to mention in packaging and graphic design.

If you want to get a head start on the trend, go for it!
