Color Trends for 2013 - Emerald Green


The self-proclaimed "color/colour" expert for fashion and design is Pantone link to website.  They have proclaimed the color "emerald" to be THE COLOR of 2013 and, not surprisingly, the design magazines and websites are starting to burst with this color.
Pantone® 17-5641 Emerald is a deeper color, at once evocative of the luxury of precious gems and the lush, verdant greens of nature.
It is a very strong green and it will be interesting to see how well it does for the more general consumers.  Last year's color, tangerine orange, was certainly seen in design spreads but not too many people actually used much of it in their homes.

Here are some emerald green images that I have collected on my pinterest board link to board and sources.  I do love the brightness of this color!









While I have a few green chairs "in production", I only have one in my current inventory that comes close to this strong saturated color. I am showing it in a mini-collage with one of my Hipstamatic IPhone photos of holiday decorations in the house.  In these waning days of the 2012 Christmas holidays, the emerald color can be a way to honor the season all year round!
This lovely chair may be sold but has been available on eBay and Etsy!
