Well it’s finally here, the long-awaited Pantone color for 2013 is Emerald 17-5641. I must say I’m not usually keen on green but this color has a royal flair to it that I don’t mind. It’s the perfect color to add impact to you decor that’s for sure.
Their press release describes this color beautifully:
Most often associated with brilliant, precious gemstones, the perception of Emerald is sophisticated and luxurious. Since antiquity, this luminous, magnificent hue has been the color of beauty and new life in many cultures and religions. It’s also the color of growth, renewal and prosperity – no other color conveys regeneration more than green. For centuries, many countries have chosen green to represent healing and unity.
