Yesterday, Pantone announced its 2014 color of the year, Radiant Orchid! While this color is beautiful combination of purples and pinks, it seems that it is controversial (isn’t every color??). I was convinced that the new color of the year would be a deep blue of some sort. iStockphoto even asked color experts for their predictions and no one came close!! Color really evokes many different emotions from people depending on their life experiences. But following last year’s color, Emerald (not my favorite), I think it is a great color that the floral industry will embrace as it represents joy, love and health. Radiant Orchid will go well with pastels, as well as the richer tones of purple and fuchsia. I can see this color combined with metallic as well, especially gold, which is super on trend right now.
