Emerald: 2013 Pantone Color of the Year

Calling it “Lively, Radiant and Lush” Pantone announced Emerald as 2013 color of the year. 

Emerald is a color of beauty and elegance that enhances our balance, harmony and sense of well-being.  The Emerald is most often associated with precious gemstones and is regarded as sophisticated and luxurious.

Emerald is a soothing color and represents healing, unity, renewal and prosperity.  The human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum.  Throw pillows, bedding, accent chairs and pottery are a great way to add touches of Emerald and will give a vibrant pop of color to your home.
