is the Pantone Color of the Year for 2013!
This selection is the result of extensive research conducted by the Pantone
who has been considered the world’s color authority for nearly 50 years.
Their team combs the world looking for color influences which can include
every thing from the entertainment industry to art collections and popular travel destinations.
And their reach extends into multiple industries where color plays an important role
such as fashion, interior design, architecture, product packaging and graphic design.
Pantone describes their pick,
"Lively. Radiant. Lush…
a color of elegance and beauty
enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony"
I’m excited about the potential of this vibrant color.
Whether it’s a bold statement like a stair runner
in smaller doses…
like this fabulous pillow from Surya,
there a lots of ways to energize your home with EMERALD!
After all, this should be quite a familiar color to those of us who followed
Dorothy, the Tin Man, and the crew to Emerald City.
"EMBRACE THE JOYS OF GOOD DESIGN!"
