Radiant Orchid is PANTONE's colour for 2014 and
"encourages expanded creativity and originality".
The first two colours are cool, whereas the yellow has a warm glow to it. The purple stands out in this crowd because of its vibrancy.
CIL's Creamy, described as a “soft,
buttery colour that emits a feeling
of calm, tranquility and renewal.”
I would use the purple as an accent colour in accessories, and possibly a focal wall, but can't really see it on all the walls of a room. Can you?
The pastel blue I'll keep as a contender for a bedroom or a bathroom.
The yellow will cheer up any room. It's the most versatile of the three. Paired with black and grey, it feels fresh and more contemporary than the French country style that this hue is often associated with.
What do you think, will you try any of these colours next year?
Benjamin Moore's Breath of Fresh Air 806 is
described as a "new neutral", that works in
several different environments.
CIL's "Creamy" paired with greys, whites and black.
