Pantone has announced the 2013 #ColorOfTheYear:  Emerald.

Considering that emerald just so happens to be my birthstone color, I think this is a sign that 2013 is totally going to be my year. Here’s what Pantone had to say about the color’s meaning:

Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.

Oh, Pantone, stop. You know I blush when you flatter me. Though, I should correct you; I’m not lush; my drinking habits make me A lush. There’s a difference. Anyway, onto the color inspiration for your home. Whether it’s a full splash on the walls or an accent color, emerald can really add some wow to a room (or your outdoor space). Just remember to keep it balanced with neutrals!

  1. I love the idea of using emerald as the pop-color of a room, red is overused I think.

    Gorgeous photos btw.
