Color Crush: Pinch of Green

Green. It’s symbolic for growth, nature and money. It’s also the color most associated with Ireland. Known as the “Emerald Isle” for it’s lush countryside, the Irish have been celebrating their patron saint, Patrick for centuries every March 17th. On this day, wearing a shamrock or the color green became tradition.

There is an Irish saying, “there are only two kinds of people in the world, the Irish and those who wish they were.” Today as the world celebrates St. Patrick’s Day, we can all be a little Irish… that is if you wear green.

In spirit of St. Patrick and my Irish grandfather, I’m sharing a few interiors with a pinch of green.

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.”
