Pantone Color of the Year 2013


Goodbye, tangerine tango.  Hello, emerald green.

This year Pantone has selected emerald as the Color of the Year for 2013.  A lively, radiant, lush green, expect to see shades of emerald trending in home decor, fashion, beauty and product design.

“Green is the most abundant hue in nature – the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®.  “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.”

Retailers and designers are already embracing emerald.  In February, JCPenney will debut emerald tone bedding, accessories, pillows and towels.  Sephora will follow with a limited edition 2013 Color of the Year beauty collection, featuring emerald eye shadow, nail polish and accessories in March.

From stylish shoes and dramatic draperies to bold furniture and funky accessories, some emerald inspiration for the new year.

Are you excited about emerald?
