Radiant Orchid Color Palettes

Pantone announced a while back ago that Radiant Orchid was their pick for 2014's color of the year and I was so relieved! I wasn't a fan of their pick for last year-Emerald. I think it was too strong, and quite honestly it felt like an unfriendly color to me. I didn't want to surround myself with it the way I do with Radiant Orchid and all the lovely colors that it can be combined with. But, I understand that everyone has their own personal taste when it comes to color. I have always leaned towards the warmer colors of the spectrum. I rarely use greens and blues in my designs because they are my least favorite hues. So... Thank you Pantone for picking a color I don't mind working with this year :)

I've built a few color palettes to share for inspiration. As you can probably tell, I am a big fan of keeping these Radiant Orchid palettes in an analogous color range. I think the pinks and purples can be very stunning together with tiny hints of whispered down grays. I even threw in a couple of blush tones because they add an interesting dynamic to the palettes. Feel free to use any of these palettes, or play with them and modify them to suit your fancy! Enjoy! xoxo -bgj
