2013 Color of the Year!

A new year is here and 2013 will bring many new and exciting design options.  One of the biggest trends set right out of the gate is the Color of the Year selection.

There are several companies that set this trend. The most internationally recognized  is Pantone, followed by the paint industry. We will be sharing other other industry picks with later posts.

Pantone has set the color of the year as, “PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald, a lively, radiant, lush green, is the Color of the Year for 2013.”

How do you feel about this jewel toned color?  Will you be brave enough to try it in your home?  If you’re not afraid of a bold statement of color, then perhaps a fresh coat of paint will suit you best.  However, if you prefer just a hint of color throughout your home, then try an accent pillow or even drapery panels with a pattern that includes the emerald color.
