Pantone has revealed the 2014 color of the year: a lovely purple/pink shade called Radiant Orchid.
Pantone calls the color “an invitation to innovation…Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society.” Of course, as crafters, we already know the value of creativity and originality; it’s nice to see the rest of society catching up.
Pantone’s press release offers details on the emotions Radiant Orchid evokes and the strengths it brings to home decor, fashion, and more. For crafters, Radiant Orchid is a great color too, versatile enough for masculine or feminine motifs and a good fit for many holidays and occasions.
