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.
