“Pantone Reveals Color of the Year for 2014.” For over 10 years, the Pantone Color Institute, a company dedicated to studying and forecasting color trends, announces a new color of the year. I’m always excited to see what each year brings.

The color for 2013 was Emerald and in 2012, it was Tangerine Tango, which was similar to a crate blood oranges.  The color for 2014 is called Radiant Orchid, and it’s . . . absolutely lovely.

I’ve already seen varying shades of Radiant Orchid in Spring/Summer 2014 runway shows, and I could see it becoming a popular paint shade for feminine boudoirs.

I wonder what Pantone’s prediction for 2015 will be….
