Why are we talking about radiant orchid? Because it is Pantone's 2014 color of the year. The pictures are supposed to show the magical tones of purple, orchid, magenta and pink, but for some reason some of the radiant orchid showed up as pink. Those undertones show through, I suppose.
"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."
WOW! And it turns out even better, radiant orchid is one of my favorite colors!
And, the picture below, well its back to ice and reality!
