2013 – The Year of the Emerald

Pantone has done its’ yearly job of selecting the color of the year. The color for this New Year is Emerald. It follows on the heels of 2012’s Tangerine Tango. Think of 2012’s color as the boost given to us to help lift us out of a global depression. Then along comes Emerald a color of nature that has symbolized new life, growth, healing and renewal. It is very much needed after the recent horrific events we have lived through.
It is the dominant color of nature. Every flower of every color has a green stem and leaves making it the universal color that goes with all your home’s colors. It will be very easy to incorporate it in your home’s décor. Cover a throw pillow, spray paint a plant pot and get some new hand towels in this “gem” of a color-Emerald. Pair it with a quiet neutral in grey, black or tan. A little bit of neutral will help you decompress.
