Every year we look forward to what colour will be chosen as colour of the year by Pantone. Emerald made its grand appearance in 2013, and now the colour of the year for 2014 has finally been chosen. So, say goodbye to emerald, as 2014 will be the year of Radiant Orchid.

Wait, Radiant Orchid?

Yes, just that. Radiant Orchid is a perfect blend of purple and pink hues, and, according to the Pantone website, is a colour that "emnates great joy, love, and health".

Personally, I'm a big fan of anything pink/purple, so I'm on the boat for this selection. I've even put together a few ways in which you can incorporate Radiant Orchid into your outfit, makeup, and even in your home decor. How exciting!
