Pantone’s color of the year for 2014 is RADIANT ORCHID, with shades of purple mixing with pastels and vivid brights.

Now that our homes are decorated for the holidays and our month is filled with celebrations, Pantone is directing our attention to 2014’s color of the year: Radiant Orchid. Pantone suggests the inspiration for the 2014 color choices come from blooming flowers, traveling abroad and strong women.  We are yearning for stability but want versatility to experiment with new looks and color combinations.

So while visions of sugar plums dance, start thinking of adding a touch or two of the new colors to refresh and brighten your décor.
