I jumped with joy over Pantone’s 2014 color of the year – Radiant Orchid! Why? Because it is the perfect blend of reds and blues and is so versatile. It simply is “radiant”! And who doesn’t love orchids. They are intricate, delicate, and stunning in every way.
Ombre, French for “shaded,” is a beautiful way to convey your wedding schematic. Select the focal color and play with its varying shades to bring an elegant, romantic yet modern and fresh look to your day.
The nice thing about incorporating varietal shades of color is you don’t get hung up on matchy-matchy, and can explore a wide possibilities of color across many decorative items. It’s playful yet makes a visual impact.
Whether you describe that sacred of all colors as amethyst, eggplant, indigo, lavender, lilac, mulberry, orchid, plum, pomegranate, puce, royal, thistle, violet or wine — purple is magical. The opposites of hot red and cool blue combine to create this intriguing color.
A mysterious color, purple is associated with both nobility and spirituality. Purple is considered the color of good judgment and for those seeking spiritual fulfillment (violet represents the Crown chakra). It is said if you surround yourself with purple you will have peace of mind. And peace of mind sums it up for my most magical wedding.
