Expressive, exotic Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and warmth 
Dec. 5, 2013 – Pantone today announced PANTONE® 18-3224 Radiant Orchid as the color of the year for 2014. “While the 2013 color of the year, PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald, served as a symbol of growth, renewal and prosperity, Radiant Orchid reaches across the color wheel to intrigue the eye and spark the imagination,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society.” “An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, 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.”

Radiant Orchid for Interiors
Incorporate this color into your space with paint, accent furnishings, and accessories. Radiant Orchid complements olive and deeper hunter greens, and pairs beautifully with turquoise, teal, and even light yellows. It’s also a beautiful accent color to a neutral color scheme including gray, beige and taupe.
For more than a decade, Pantone’s Color of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries, including fashion, home and industrial design, as well as product packaging and graphic design.

Forget Making New Year Resolutions

Forget making resolutions. Create an action plan, rather than a list of things you think you should do that will leave you feeling guilty for not accomplishing them.

When you create a plan of action – you plan for success.

1. Define a specific goal you want to accomplish.
2. Decide how you’re going to accomplish it.
3. Break it down into small, specific, realistic steps. (monthly, weekly, daily goals)
4. Track your progress and hold yourself accountable.

Wishing you happy and organized new year!
