For my annual year in review, I thought I’d use some of my Instagrams shots that I snapped. And I thought I’d present them focused on the color.

Pantone is the major color company in the world, and every year it decides what will be the color of the year. For 2014, the people behind Pantone decided that “Radiant Orchid,” a shade of purple, will be the color of the year.pantone-color-of-the-year-radiant-orchid-main

I love the name of the color, but you don’t really find a lot of Radiant Orchid-colored food, unless you’re in Hawaii and they garnish a dish or cocktail with an actual orchid. Looking at some of my Instagram shots, it looks like the dominant color of my food shots have been either red or brown. Figures.

Anywho, what’s your favorite color for food? And hope you have a lot of it in the coming year. Happy New Year!pantone01pantone02pantone06

    Great job on the yearly review, Ben! One of the best I’ve seen so far. I am loving the new color for 2014, purple is one of my favorite colors. 🙂 Maybe Ube will be used more, I can not remember if the tones are the same as the ‘Radiant Orchid’.
