The “it” Color for 2013 :: Emerald Green

The hue most associated with nature, harmony and growth, is ramping up for a big year because last week Pantone announcement that Emerald Green (17-5641)  is the official color of 2013. The jewel-tone is quite a contrast from last year’s energizing, Tangerine Tango.

Emerald Green’s a beautiful hue for interiors and you can’t go wrong pairing it with blues, oranges and yellows. Incorporate this harmonious color in your home by adding an emerald textiles – upholstered chairs, area rugs or throw pillows. Use the color as an accent by painting dining chairs, a chest of drawers or the front door in this rejuvenating hue? - Benjamin Moore’s Emerald Isle is a close match.

“The human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “As it has throughout history, multifaceted Emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate. Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world. This powerful and universally appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors.”

    I thought I read the pantone of 2013 is some variety of indigo or classic navy blue. Maybe that was a different year. ? Green has always been my fave color!
