The 2014 Pantone Colour of the year is Vibrant Orchid. You have already seen Vibrant Orchid making an appearance on the runways for Spring 2014 fashion collections and you will see more of this colour in interiors and furnishings.
Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Colour Institute, said: ‘Radiant orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society.
‘An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, radiant orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health.’
Pantone also praised radiant orchid for being versatile and said that it looks ‘seductive’ when paired with reds or purple and pink.
I can’t wait to play with this shade in cake. I’m thinking clean and simple wedding cakes decorated with orchids or, splashes of this shade in celebration cakes…We’re loving the vibe of Vibrant Orchid in the Delights Kitchen.
