Ever see an old piece of clothing and think, "Boy, that color looks dated!" How about a room that hasn't seen a new coat of paint in years? Every year the people at Pantone figure out the hot colors that we'll be seeing on the clothing racks, interior spaces and beauty products.

The 2014 color of the year is Radiant Orchid.  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®. I love Pantone's description, “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.” How will we see Radiant Orchid in fashion according to Pantone? "Radiant Orchid’s rosy undertones radiate on the skin, producing a healthy glow when worn by both men and women. A dazzling attention-getter, Radiant Orchid permeated the runways during the spring 2014 fashion shows and is already making its way onto the red carpet." Look for Radiant orchid in 2014.  I suspect that we'll be seeing a lot of it.
