Every year, the Pantone Color Institute releases its Spring Color Report for the following year in early September. This years' crop of hues are an exciting spin on modern and traditional colors for 2014:
However the Institute doesn't reveal its "STAR" hue until December. With much anticipation and surprise, Pantone has announced the Color for 2014...RADIANT ORCHID.
"An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid #18-3224 inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm," according to the Pantone press release on the 2014 selection.
Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel from the 2013 color Emerald to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination. Designers are sure to fascinate and incite our fashion senses with this striking hue:

As in the past, the world of interior design follows the fashion "Gods" with an influx of Radiant Orchid whether it takes center stage or as a dominating accent. This purple hue, one of my favorites, is sure to provide a fresh perspective on the world of interior design and not just for little girls' rooms:
Happy trend spotting...
Peace and Blessings,
