Pantone Color Institute® recently introduced 2013′s Color of the Year… *drum roll*… Emerald 17-5641! We can’t necessary say we saw this coming, as the radiant hue comes on the coat tales of 2012′s go-to color, Tangerine Tango. None the less as an earth tone and natural “feel good” color, I see 2013 being a year in which my endless list of resolutions may come to fruition. Finding my core and inner chi was a topper and with soul soothing emerald’s lingering about that may not be a far stretch.
“The most abundant hue in nature, the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum. As it has throughout history, multifaceted Emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate. Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world. This powerful and universally-appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors.”
- Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®
