2014 Pantone Color of the year: Not-so-Radiant Orchid

Color of the Year for 2014 is Radiant Orchid, specifically Pantone 18-3224 for those of you who love to be exact about such things. And thank god for it as last year’s color was Emerald which was actually too depressing to even blog about. Pantone announced this year’s pick as “vibrant, captivating—and suddenly everywhere. With a harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health.”

Awesome! The only problem is, on closer inspection Radiant Orchid ain’t really all that radiant. In fact, it’s pretty damned mauve. Exhibit A:
