Emerald: Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2013

If we can judge a year by its color, 2013 is going to be the best year yet.  With Emerald as my birthstone, I love this radiant and rich shade as predictor of the color trend for the coming year.  While I would probably gravitate to a darker emerald (the way I like my stones), 17-5641 is a versatile and easy to use shade of green.  Somewhere between a pastel and forest green, it’s gender neutral, natural and elegant.

Here are a few ways to introduce the 2013 color of the year into your home.

1- Offi EVA Foam Chairs in Blue and Green– $199
2- Kale Kauzebot– $25
3- Twinkle Living Necklace Throw Pillow– $58
4- Artecnica Themis Prism– $40
5- Bugaboo Bee Stroller and Canopy – Special Edition-Jade Green– $660
