mood board, radiant orchid

Pantone, “a world-renown authority on color and provider of color systems,” declared “radiant orchid” the color of the year for 2014, and we agree that it’s a color worthy of adoration. This shade is both playful and elegant, combining the traditional richness of purple with a happy-go-lucky pink undertones.

If you’re as taken with this color as we are, you’ll enjoy this inspiration + mood board we put together. Use it to spark your imagination and your creativity!
