Every year Pantone selects an outstanding color of the year. This year, the color of the year for 2013 is Emerald. A color that Pantone describes as: “Most often associated with brilliant, precious gemstones, the perception of Emerald is sophisticated and luxurious. Since antiquity, this luminous, magnificent hue has been the color of beauty and new life in many cultures and religions. Also the color of growth, renewal and prosperity, no other color conveys regeneration more than green. For centuries, many countries have chosen green to represent healing and unity.”
Even though it is the color of my eyes, it is not my favorite color… Maybe because our first house was covered in emerald green carpet and it was just too much? After looking at all the beautiful inspirations, I have to say that I’m beginning to like it. I could definitely see myself wear it as a pop of color.
