2014 was the year of Radiant Orchid, a cool toned medium-pink that captured the fashion, decor and beauty world by storm; but today we want to give a nod to one of Radiant Orchid’s close cousins: fuchsia. Fuchsia is a bright reddish-purple that takes its name from the equally beautiful fuchsia flower. This color would look beautiful in any season because it’s vibrant enough for summer, but rich enough for winter.
A fuchsia dress is one way to liven up a room! It’s as dramatic as red, but a little more modern and playful.
A popular choice for bride, this bold color is perfect for accenting more muted colors.
And don’t forget about home decor! Adding fuchsia to your room is a fantastic way to make any room more lively!
This week we’re highlighting a color that screams summer to us! One you’ll find in your brightly colored fruit smoothies, the toes of bikini-clad beach-goers, and dappled on the skin of your summer peaches. We’re talking about coral, a color inspired by the vibrant reef!
A bright color like this is perfect for celebrations, making it a go-to for wedding and party planners.
The lace overlay lends a little demure mystery to a bold coral dress! It’s the perfect color for the warm summer months.
This vibrant shade is great for adding personality to your home decor. It looks fantastic when paired with blues and green, just like it does in the ocean!
Yellow doesn’t really get a lot of love, even though it deserves it! It’s a bright and sunny color that can immediately make you smile. Lemon yellow, specifically, evokes the warmth and fun of spring and summer. It’s the perfect color for both decor and clothing.
When it comes to decor, this shade looks stunning with cool neutrals. Pair it with gray, taupe or even black for a chic yet sunny style. It’s also perfect for infusing personality into any room. Notice how stunning that piano looks when painted yellow?
Lemon yellow is extremely wearable, especially when paired with a sun-kissed glow. It looks beautiful in a more modern style, or a loose and carefree vintage dress!
As you may well know, Radiant Orchid was announced as Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2014 this December. This cool pinky-purple has been seen on the runway in almost every iteration, and is making its way into your home in the form of throw pillows and special edition kitchen appliances. But in 2014, you’re going to see a lot more of it in every aspect of design, fashion and even beauty. If you aren’t sold on this color yet, take a look at some of these inspirational photos that are bound to ignite a passion for this fun floral.
A fantastic choice for any bedroom, Radiant Orchid is cool, calming and modern.
This beautiful look really embraces the Color of the Year. Our favorite aspect of the shot? The gorgeous flowers in the model’s hair of course!
Last year’s Color of the Year was Emerald, a tough choice to parlay into the beauty realm. But Radiant Orchid can easily be adapted for the face!
One way of deciding the Color of the Year is to take a cue from the catwalk, and see what colors are popping up from show to show. The looks above use that enchanting shade to make two totally different dresses. The versatility of a color makes it a good pick for the Color of the Year.
When it comes to Radiant Orchid, we’re completely excited about the change. The color is modern, cool, airy, and a even a little intoxicating. We love it so much that we want you to get addicted too! Check in tomorrow for a special offer involving this gorgeous shade.
