Each year, Pantone Inc. declares a particular hue “Color of the Year”. The color is chosen in a secret meeting of representatives from various nations’ color standards groups. After two days of presentations and debate they announce the winner, and this year’s Pantone color of the year is Emerald Green.
Pantone is describing the choice as, “Lively. Radiant. Lush…A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.”
When I think of Emerald, I envision grassy rolling hills, a richly hued gemstones and costal ocean waters. From a color perspective, green is the color of growth, of renewal and rebirth. It’s optimistic and comforting, restoring us back to a sense of well-being.
What better way to refresh your spirit and enrich your home than by incorporating a little green into your space?
Emerald will also influence fashion and textiles this year, so keep an eye out for these trends.
How will you incorporate green into your life in 2013? Wear it, live it, earn it?
