Pantone’s Radiant Orchid for Locker Hooking? Love it…

January 19, 2014

Over the past few years, Pantone, the company that has become a leading trend setter when it comes to color, has branched out into various industries with numerous partnerships that help promote their color choices. And every year Pantone selects a color of the year. The 2014 color is a delicious and rich Radiant Orchid. It’s already being interpreted in many designs–from nail color and makeup, to designer fashions and remarkable interior designs and furnishings.  Pantone even has indoor paint available in this rich color. Well here at  my tiny Color Crazy studio, I was inspired to pull out some supplies and designs in varied shades of Orchid. (I even changed one of my fabric strip’s names to Orchid from Hyacinth! It seemed more descriptive.) It’s making me want to create with this yummy color when locker hooking. Below are some new locker hooked designs and some colorful inspiration.

The new Vintage Weave fabric strips in spring colors came in and they just made me smile. The colors are gorgeous. They remind me of spring, so fresh and vintage-y in a cool retro kind of way. I just had to create something. Problem was I didn’t have that much time–mostly because I’m late in...
