Pantone 2014 Color of the Year

Pantone 2014 Color of the Year

By now you have probably seen the 2014 Pantone color of the year, which is Radiant Orchid. I am a little late to the party, yet again. I've been reading a lot of negativity about the color choice, but I like it. Then again, I am a big fan of the color purple. 

There really are some cute items in this color. I especially love the area rug from Target. I tried to keep all of the items affordable, but there is one item on here which is way out of my budget. Can you guess which one? Here is a hint: You have to carry it. :)

And if you are looking to craft something in this color, you are in luck! For yarnies, like myself, Red Heart Yarn sells both a dark orchid and light orchid yarn. There is also a purple tones yarn that has a mixture of purples, including orchid.

For the general crafter, Eco-fi felt carries felt in orchidI have this color and it is really nice. I guess I'll need to make something with it this year. Martha Stewart carries an orchid glass paint and FIMO carries a violet clay, which is very similar to orchid.  

See! We can all have fun with this year's Pantone color.


  1. I had no idea that was that color of the year but just happened to paint my nails orchid last night lol

  2. That is great! You picked the perfect color. :)
