Pantone has announced that Radiant Orchid is the colour for 2014 and I have to admit when I first saw it, I wasn’t very excited. Everyone has colours that they gravitate towards and likewise colours that they avoid. Most shades of purple are generally on my avoid list.
Having said this, clients can ask me to work with any colour scheme and it’s my job to make it work whether or not it’s one of my favourite tones. Plus I don’t like the thought of getting stuck in a colour rut. The new year is upon us and what better time to venture out of my comfort zone and try something new.
Thanks to Pinterest it wasn’t long before I had lost myself in a Radiant Orchid haze. My favourite picks are those shown above but you can see all the items I pinned here. As you can see I’m still obsessed with gold and I think the two colours make a very regal combination.
