12.07.2012: Pantone Color of the Year for 2013, Emerald

Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2013 was just selected and announced in a recent press release; Emerald, Pantone 17-5641.

For those of you who hedged your bets on a deeper, richer color than 2012, you were correct. The “radiant, jewel-toned Emerald promotes balance and harmony” and is finding its place in both fashion and interiors.

I am personally very excited about the return of the perfect lush shade of green, and I’m equally as interested to see how this shapes fashion for both Spring and Fall in 2013. I’ll definitely be filing away this shade for a fresh, new take on the greens we have all been using for the last few years. Can’t wait to start incorporating Emerald into some new color palettes and designs!
