Each December Pantone releases a color of the year that has had influence in fashion, beauty, interiors and the like. This year on December 5 they announced their 2013 color to be….(Drumroll please!!): Radiant Orchid!

There may be some of us who see this lovely purple and are immediately struck with a genius use. Maybe you’ve been searching for the perfect wedding color pallet. Perhaps you’d like to paint an accent wall in your menagerie? Now there’s a brilliant way to incorporate a splash of color into your every day life! Case Scenario, a phone cover company, has brilliantly made a Pantone phone cover, which will make the perfect gift for any artistically inclined friends or family members on your gift list this year. It’s a fun way to incorporate a color that most of us couldn’t pull off in a typical wardrobe, lipstick or colorful hair streak!
