A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health.” Read the press release here.

Pantone is the global color authority and provider of professional color standards for the design industries. “Pantone products have encouraged colorful exploration and expressions of creativity from inspiration to implementation for more than 50 years.” according to their press release.
