Yesterday PANTONE® announced their Color of the Year for 2013.
A drum roll please……..
“Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.”
As I look around my home I realize I do not have emerald in my décor although I do have an emerald coat (fabulous pop of colour in my way too black wardrobe!) and an emerald ring (birthstone for May).
The word ‘emerald’ is derived from the Greek word ‘smaragdus’, meaning green and as everyone knows that ‘being green’ these days is a very positive thing. So I think as we venture into a new year Emerald will be a very optimistic and encouraging colour for 2013.
Now to embrace it in to my décor!

I’ve always loved this color! So glad that Pantone chose it as the color of the year.
It really is a great colour.
