Radiant Orchid: Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year Inspires a Very Purple Flipboard Magazine


Capping off a long process of meticulous study and design trendspotting, the color gurus at Pantone recently unveiled their 2014 Color of the Year — Radiant Orchid:

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.

As colors go, it’s definitely … rather purple.

Happily, MagMaker Andrea Folsom created a clever Flipboard magazine dedicated entirely to Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year, to document what it looks like in the real world. From fashion and food to flowers, furniture and fantastic sunsets; if its Radiant Orchid, you can find it here:
