Taking its cue from nature and the exotic orchid is Pantone's Colour of the Year for 2014, Radiant Orchid.

A gorgeous warm rich shade of purple with hints of magenta, fuchsia and pink. Incorporate this year's hue into your home through paint, textiles and homewares - it works well with beautiful safari olive greens, bright turquoise and yellow, and neutrals such as grey, beige and taupe.

"Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple - one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health." Pantone
