Radiant Orchid – Pantone Color 2014



Have you heard that the Pantone Color of 2014 is Radiant Orchid.  I have to say I was a little, no actually, more than a little, disappointed.  I am not a purple fan.  I know there are many of you who love purple.  I don’t.  The only place I like purple is outside….flowers.  Purple flowers are my favorite.  However, purple everywhere else is not for me.

You can check out my post from last year about Emerald Green. Definitely one I liked a whole lot more. I even had several items in my shop with those colors.  This year…not one item in my shop has radiant orchid much less purple, so there are no photos of vintage items for this post.  However, I did find the pretty vintage handkerchief.



I would buy this hankie.  Probably because it has flowers on it.

If you like orchid, and you decorate with purple in your home, you may love this planter.


This planter could be a gorgeous accent piece in your home.

So what do you think of this year’s color?  Like or dislike…tell me about it.

I love hearing your thoughts, please leave a comment.
