Purple and Green happen to be right at the top of my fave list. I was beyond delighted when last year Pantone chose Emerald- it's such a rich hue and puts me in mind of fabulously glinting jewels and royalty! Imagine my excitement when this time Pantone reached across the colour wheel and picked a gorgeous captivating purple!! Aaaa :) I love the Pantone team!
This is what Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute has to say about Radiant Orchid:
“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.”
