Pantone, the global colour authority and provider of professional colour standards for the design industries, yesterday announced the highly anticipated Pantone Color of the Year for 2014.
Pantone 18-3224 Radiant Orchid is an enchanting harmony of fuchsia, pink and purple undertones. Inspiring confidence and emanating great joy, love and health; the captivating colour is said to draw you with its alluring charm.
Pantone shook-up the world of trend watchers and design with the announcement of the expressive, creative and embracing shade of purple. Radiant Orchid exudes confidence and a magical warmth which intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination.
Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institiute says that the colour is, “an invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society”.
The 2014 go-to colour is welcomed with much excitement and Sian Steyn, General Manager of the Decorex SA Portfolio says, “The colour is fresh, and exudes a radiance which also encourages creativity in all aspects, something we’re looking forward to seeing throughout our exhibitions next year.
Sian adds, “There could not be a more fitting colour for our 2014 theme of ‘Design your life’, the lively colour speaks to and compliments our show theme. The Design your Life theme is about the individual, to block out all the noise, take a step back and make your life your own – this all begins with the space around you.
The eye-catching Radiant Orchid is expected to spruce up interiors in paint, accent pieces and décor accessories. The hue is as adaptable as it is beautiful.
In 2014, visitors to Decorex Durban, Cape Town, and Joburg can expect to see the vibrant on-trend colour throughout the exhibitions and all year round in many exciting ways.
