Colour Of The Month: Orchid

| Post by: in Colour Of The Month

Rich and opulent, Orchid oozes class and elegance.  Orchid takes inspiration from the beautiful Orchid flower colour palette, shades of rich pink and sun blushed purple.  Interior accessories are modern and use transparent plastic and glass coloured with the Orchid tone.  Fabrics are knitted and quite dense in construction on the flip side, fashion fabrics are free flowing, light and quite sheer, almost emulating Orchid petals.  Orchid is also Pantone’s colour of the year for 2014, it is a key colour not only for March but the entire year, so keep your eyes peeled for Orchid to be springing up everywhere this year!
