January 1 2014
In December, International colour experts Pantone, predicted Radiant Orchid as its 2014 colour of the year. A purplely-pink colour. It’s bright, warm and inviting. A colour that can be used all year round to liven up a room.
It goes beautifully with cream, white, the current neutral of the moment grey (although apparently we are trending towards neutrals with a yellow base again according to Resene paint), soft yellows, silver, gold, greens and blues.
According to Pantone, Radiant Orchid is “an enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones” that “inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health”.
Over the next few days we’ll look at what colours are forecasted in Australia. Just remember, there are no right or wrong colours, you have to like what you use.
So what do you think of the colour?
