A new year means new beginnings. Whether it’s setting new goals, getting a new look or redecorating your home, now is a good time for a change. When it comes to colour, the word is out! 2014’s colour is Radiant Orchid.
Since 2000, Pantone has been naming a colour of the year. Radiant Orchid follows last year’s Emerald Green, Tangerine Tango in 2012 and Honeysuckle in 2011. You can go all out with it, or use it as an accent colour. Officially known as Radiant Orchid, but can also be a light purple or lilac, the tropical shade is a colour-wheel contrast to green. It’s a flattering colour for many skin tones and complementary neutral colours. Whether using this hue in make up to add drama to your eyes or lips, adding a splash of colour to your look with a pair of skinny jeans and a tee, or adding bedding or accessories to your home, this colour is warm, welcoming and fun.
