How Pinteresting! The Emerald City

If we can judge a year by its color, 2013 is going to be the best year yet. Emerald! This vibrant, luminous, magnificent hue was announced earlier this month as Pantone‘s color of the year for 2013.

Mint green was all the rage this spring in fashion with green getting bluer, so it shouldn’t come as a big surprise that the newest green is a darker version of mint green. It’s the color of gemstones, Ireland, and 2013.

 Pantone Color of the Year 2013

It looks fabulous blended with turquoise, yellow and even navy blue. According to Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute – the leading authority on color trends for all industries, “Green is the most abundant hue in nature. The human eye actually sees more of it than any other color in the spectrum.” Green is even the color used for night-vision goggles because the human eye is most sensitive to and able to discern the most shades of that color. Emerald is the color of growth, the color of spring, of renewal and rebirth, and an emotionally positive color.

Emerald is already being seen coloring kitchen appliances, and expect to see even more red-carpet dresses and dishware among the array of items jeweled in the shade in the months to come.

La-Z-Boy® is in on the Emerald trend!
