Emerald green for 2013. That’s the news if you were waiting to plan any decorating updates around Pantone’s Color of the Year announcement made last week.
“Green is the most abundant hue in nature – the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum,” says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world.” Described by the color authority as “lively, radiant, lush,” the selected color, Pantone 17-5641, is projected to be prevalent in fashion, home decor and beauty products next year. “This jewel-like hue will create a luxurious feel in an entryway, powder room, dining room or study, and bring life to a living room as an accent wall.
In that spirit, we’d like to share some ideas how you can incorporate this sophisticated and luxurious color into your home this coming year.
