Life is too short to live ugly.
Well. lol (seriously trying to keep my composure while reading your candid comments). In a room. I cant do it. As a point of menswear, I am all over it. Lavendar, Purple, Lilac and "Radiant Orchid" compliments my skin tone. Wait is this color also called fuchsia? Looks like it.Mr.Goodwill Hunting
Very disappointing indeed. I concur your thoughts. Dated but in a way where it was never fashionable even way back when...
Oh thank heavens! I clicked on the blog with a sigh expecting to read the praises of that butt ugly color. I have a serious, viscerally negative reaction to it and all its Kirkland's-esque aura.
Not a fan. Then again, I've hated every one they've decided upon so far.
I completely agree. What were they thinking?!! I did like last year's color very much.
It's not so very different from the Honeysuckle a few years back, is it? Someone at Pantone likes painful pinks.
Hooked on Houses reported on the Pantone color and the image she used is very different - certainly not fuschiahttp://hookedonhouses.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/Pantone-Color-of-the-Year-2014-Radiant-Orchid.jpgMonitor colors can vary so much also.
Merlyn Corcoran - If you google "Pantone Radiant Orchid," you will see many shades. You will notice I downloaded the official Pantone swatch.
Does this mean I have to repaint my emerald green walls?
Mar gar et - Nailed it.Rashon Carraway - The fact that I look awful in this color is a big reason for my intense dislike. ;)Coulda shoulda woulda - My dislike for that shade has only grown in the past twenty years. And why is it always paired with teal?Kerry Steele- Design du Monde - Honey, never loose your faith in me!The Pink Pagoda - This one surprised me, given the prominence of that peacock/teal shade that has dominated of late.Elizabeth - "Painful pinks" is brilliant!gmjl - Ha! Life's only certainty is change.
Agreed. It's god-awful. So prom dress pink. Am I right?
stephanie at Stephanie Kraus Designs - Dead on.
Oh boy, I know I'm in the minority here, but this color makes me smile! It's the color of my bedroom circa 1969. Think Carol Burnett, Twiggy, Cher (with Sonny), Three Dog Night, the Sears catalog ---Sweet times!
It's going o be a long year
I'm with Leslie at Lekalia Interiors and her references -- I have (now) vintage pants this color from Ralph Lauren and whenever I wear them, I'm approached by smiling strangers saying they love the color. In the right hands and on quality fabrications, this color is gorgeous.
It's been three years since I learned of Pantone's obvious pin-the-tail-on-the-dumb-ass color game and I'm wondering why we care anymore. It's great self-promotion on their part kind of like Amazon's announcement of delivery drones on Cyber Monday. Or maybe I'm just Jaded Pinka Smith which I predict will be Pantone's color next year.
An Urban Cottage - You're exactly right. It helps sell all of those awful coffee mugs lazy museum shop buyers foist on the public. And I will fully support your brilliant selection of "Jaded Pinka Smith."
Actually this is the color of every 4-year old girl's favorite dress, shortie-set, jellie shoes, purse, footie socks, pajamas, bedspread, and Barbie Car. Which is why by the age of six we all hated it, and still do.Maybe they went overboard with "Bring Your Daughters to Work" this year? That's mean, I'm sorry.
well - i would like it on a white linen - in velvet - as a pillow. naturally. haha! not much else.
