2013 is coming to an end and its time to say bye-bye to Emerald and hello to Radiant Orchid – Pantone Colour of the year 2014. This is the colour you will be seeing everywhere in 2014. From fashion on the runway, to art to home decor and just about everywhere.

An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. – Pantone

Pantone says the shade can be paired with lavender, purple and pink for an assortment of lipstick and blush options.
