Color Trends for 2014

What are the top color trends for 2014?  Do you have a favorite?  I have selected three to share with you today.

Pantone's color of the year is Radiant Orchid. 


According to Pantone's website "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." 

Purple or lavender has long been a favorite for girls of all ages and
  • Contains elements of surprise and magic
  • Represents royalty
  • Suggests romance, imagination, and passion
and can even suppress your appetite!

 
Benjamin Moore's color of the year is called Breath of Fresh Air.  I would describe it as a spa blue.
