It may be single digits outside, but I am radiating for the “2014 PANTONE® Color of the Year – the captivating, magical, enigmatic purple called Radiant Orchid.” I knew this was going to be a good year and now Pantone, the color geniuses of the world, have selected a color that is my absolute favorite as the color of the year for 2014.
Note that when I had my astrology reading several years back during my visit to the Miraval Spa, the astrologist did say that I am a trendsetter. I have found my calling during my life after 50. Yes, yes, yes.
“Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society. 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.”
Thank you Leatrice, now I know why I am captivated by this color. I can’t wait until Spring 2014 to see all the fashions, beauty products and home accessories in my favorite shade of all shades. My closet will be brimming with Radiant Orchid clothes, my lips and nails will be painted with Radiant Orchid, and my home office is waiting for a Radiant Orchid makeover.
