Every year, Pantone, the creators of the Pantone color matching system, announce a color of the year. In 2013, the color was emerald. In 2012, a poppy orange called "tangerine tango." In 2011, a deep pink called honeysuckle.
This year's color? Radiant Orchid.
Radiant Orchid is "an enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones," according to Pantone. "[It] inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm."
