According to the Pantone press release, "Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health."

Next time I'll try an interpretation that actually has some of the purple-y color that Pantone has decreed the color of the moment. Until then, I'll take radiant and orchid separately.
