As 2014 looms on the horizon it is that time of the year where we eagerly await just how colourful next year is going to be.
a captivating, magical, enigmatic purple
The announcement wasn’t even close to the blues and greys that many people had predicted (including my brother), but with the colour already creeping into Spring fashion shows, the red carpet and interior design practices who can argue.
Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm
The colour is “a captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones” and able to blend with both warm and cool colours. It will even have a go at complimenting neutral shades so it won’t surprise me to see this as one of the more dominant and successful choices that Pantone have selected, particularly throughout the design and fashion sectors.
