Orchid is a purple color with tones of blue, pink and grey, and takes its hue and name from the orchid flower. It is the result of mixing red and blue with white and black. Radiant Orchid was Pantone Color of the Year 2014 and is described as “an enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple, and pink undertones.”
Orchids are considered symbols of love, and due to their rarity, they were also considered symbols of luxury and opulence during the Victorian era, and of wealth in ancient Japan. The captivating color inspires confidence, creativity, love, and joy.
Orchid can be used to liven up neutrals such as gray, beige, and taupe.
