At the end of last year, in December exactly, the Pantone Institute announced its decision to choose the PANTONE ® 18-3224 Radiant Orchid as the color of the year 2014. This institution has been choosing different colors as the color of the year since 2000. Regarding the chosen color, it is a purple rose that the institution defines as an invitation to innovation and imagination.
This institution is a world benchmark for the entire design industry, in its broadest sense, and color has already been seen in the proposals of some clothing designers and those of the cosmetics industry. All the industry whose products are related to color follow the guidelines of the Pantone Institute, which has long become the world reference in the field of color.
It is an interesting color in decoration to highlight a wall for example or even to become the main actor in the decoration of any room. Joy, love and health they are the feelings that it tries to transmit. The colors with which can be combined this striking Radiant Orchid are neutral colors like gray, beige and brown but also with light yellow and turquoise .
A bright and youthful color , fun and full of life that can nevertheless provide solutions of great elegance. It will be a matter of going to see the proposals of the designers and testing on our own. I think it may be a good idea to create great transformations in our decoration with small changes.
