Are you looking for a signature color in your home? We have one for you—Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid.

This is not a shy color! The Pantone Color Institute describes it as “captivating, magical, and enchanting,” a blend of purple, pink, and fuchsia that it memorable and mesmerizing, with rosy undertones that are cheerful and yet full of energy. Pantone’s Color of the Year isn’t chosen to be a fashion statement, but is rather a distillation of the current mood in all areas of design, including art, film, technology, and entertainment. Here’s a video about the selection of the color:
