Radiant Orchid

If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you know how I feel about purple [my favorite hue and the official color of Epilepsy Awareness!]. So it should come as no surprise that I was thrilled by Pantone’s choice to name Radiant Orchid its Color of the Year!

Pantone Color of the Year Swatch; Radiant Orchid“Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health.” [ via Pantone.com ]
