Pantone Colors in Real Life

Pantone 3

Is anyone else really bummed about the color Pantone chose as 2014′s color of the year?  Radiant Orchid is said to be purple with pink and fuchsia undertones.  But mostly it reminds me of doctor’s office upholstery.  (Bon Appetit, I applaud your efforts to make this happier news than it is with your post about purple desserts, but it’s just not going to work.)

In the spirit of Pantone, however, I will still share this fun photo project by Paul Octavious who matches Pantone paint chips to his real-life environments.  Some of my favorite photos below and more here:
