Happy New Year dear readers!

As my first post for 2014, it is important (but not always) to know whats in trend for the color of the year.

Following 2013’s Emerald Green, Pantone is suggesting Radiant Orchid  as the shade that summarises the overall colour trends of 2014.

The rosy pink (aka Pantone 18-3224) represents a healthy glow, making projects that use it appear more energetic, says Pantone. The colour system developer sees it being combined with reds for a seductive look, or accented with similar shades of lavender, purple and pink – or contrasted with deep greens or turquoise.

Pantone says its sees the colour being used to these ends across fashion, beauty and interiors – as well as advertising, graphic design and art. It notes the colour appears in the spring collections of fashion labels such as Emerson by Jackie Fraser-Swan, Juicy Couture and Yoana Baraschi.

We’re going to take Pantone’s interpretation with a pinch of salt though, as Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Colour Institute describes its choice of the 2013 Colour of the Year as a “symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity” – which is an odd thing to apply to a year where the phrase ‘austerity Britain’ was overused to the point of cliché.
