Pantone Colour of the Year 2014 – Radiant Orchid

Pantone has announced the Colour of the Year 2014 – called Radiant Orchid, a vibrant shade of purple. I must say I like this colour more than last year’s colour of the year Emerald. Here’s the CMYK and RGB values and the closest match to Pantone colour book.

Wallpaper calendar for July 2013

Here’s another desktop wallpaper calendar I would like to share with you, this time for July 2013. The yellow and purple colour scheme and the simplicity of the floral arrangement makes this so refreshing in the heat of summer. The pale yellow with a little pink blush on the rose and the lavender sprigs were all from the garden. I hope you enjoy it.
