Pantone's Colour of 2014... Radiant Orchid!

'Since 2000, the Pantone Colour Institute™ has been designating a Colour of the Year to express in colour what is taking place in the global zeitgeist. A colour that will resonate around the world, the PANTONE Colour of the Year is a reflection of what people are looking for, what they feel they need that colour can help to answer. Not necessarily the hot fashion colour of the moment, but a colour crossing all areas of design which is an expression of a mood, an attitude, on the part of the consumers.

The colour for 2014?  The captivating, magical and enchanting Radiant Orchid. An invitation to innovation, modern and versatile Radiant Orchid encourages creativity and originality. Imbued with a harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and its rosy undertones emanate great joy, love and health.'

Radiant Orchid is probably one of the harder colours to translate into the bathroom, we've put together some of our favourite Orchid-hued images as inspiration to tackle this tricky trend. 

Pairing this tone with brass tapware is a winning combination, its the type of colour that works well with both traditional and contemporary fixtures and definitely not for the faint-hearted!
