A certain shade of purple is getting a lot of attention these days! Radiant Orchid has been announced as the Pantone® Color of the Year for 2014, and everyone in fashion, home decor and (of course) weddings is talking about it.

Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, says this about the hot new shade: “Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.” Yep, we’re charmed, all right!

Even though the current reign of Emerald still has a couple weeks, we couldn’t wait to start thinking of our favorite examples of this “harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones.” See our picks below, and look out for more in 2014.
