Radiant Orchid

Radiant Orchid 1 I couldn’t have been more excited last year when Pantone announced 2013′s color of the year: Emerald. But this year, when they announced Radiant Orchid as the new color, I was a little hesitant. I thought it was a little too feminine, too girly. So over the past couple of weeks I’ve been thinking about the new hue, trying to find inspiration. I’ve finally decided that I think it’s great that they’ve continued with another bold jewel tone that’s easy to integrate into not only fashion but into decor around the house.
