I bet you are so excited! Okay, maybe this means nothing to you but apparently it is a big deal when they announce the color every year. What is interesting about this to me is that Pantone isn’t announcing the color that was all the rage in 2012 it is predicting that emerald will be the color of the new year. Interesting right? I guess only time will tell if they are right or not. Personally, I love emerald green so I’m happy.
If you don’t already know Pantone is “the standard language of color communication.” What that means is that if a fabric manufacturer makes fabric that is “Pantone 17-5641 Emerald” then everyone knows exactly what color that fabric will be. I love Pantone because they have these really cool accessories:
Working off the premise that emerald will be the color of 2013 here are some super cool emerald(ish) things to make your house the talk of Pantone lovers world wide (okay, so some of these things aren’t officially ’emerald’ but they are close enough for us amateurs). For more emerald/green things check out my post from a few months ago where I totally predicted that green was a trending color.
I love this print by Leah Giberson titled ‘Approaching Print.’ It looks like a storm is about to hit at any second. It is sold by Little Paper Planes for $35.00.
