Radiant Orchid is part of Pantone's Spring Colour Guide for 2014 
A SEASON OF COLORFUL EQUILIBRIUMDesigners take a modern twist on the traditional for spring 2014 by pairing soft pastels with vivid brights to create a colorful equilibrium. Inspired by a mixture of blooming flowers, travels abroad, and strong, confident women, designers use color to refresh, revive and defy conventional wisdom.

At Nook Flowers we’re naturally excited about interpreting this shade in our unique creations. Here’s a look at of some of our compositions featuring the season's hottest colours:

Vase with yellow lilies, sterling purple roses, mokara orchids and eustomas.

Lilies, cymbidium orchid and glossy loops of bear grass in 2 shades presented in a narrow rectangle vase. 

This basket was inspired by Audrey Hepburn's quote - "I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles." 

This free-form willow basket is bursting with pink-hued blooms - roses, eustomas, cymbidium orchids, alstromeria and sweet williams with trailing ivy.

Fun and flirty with mums and mini cymbidiums.

Inspired by Gershwin's 'Rhapsody in Blue' we created this Rhapsody In Purple - multi-hued basket of lilies, roses, orchids, eustomas, caspia and cordyline with fresh burst of green from Song of India and rain forest leaves.
