It has arrived! The 2013 Color of the Year was released by Pantone a few weeks ago. And it is…..Emerald Green!
What are your thoughts? Would you use it in your home?
I personally keep my home fairly neutral so that I can change up the colors every so often. My walls are very neutral and so is my furniture. I add all of the color through removable items, such as cushions, throws, artwork and accessories. This makes it a lot easier to switch out your color scheme whenever your heart desires. You don’t have to worry about repainting walls, covering up furniture, etc.
I don’t think I would be so bold as to paint my walls the emerald green or add major furniture pieces in it. But I could see myself adding some accents in the beautiful jewel tone.
Here’s an example of keeping a neutral background and adding a pop of color to make a dramatic impact…
These are a few items I found that could be added in to my decor…
I personally think this year’s color is a winner! It can be used in so many ways and as little or as much as you’d like.
I would love to know your thoughts 🙂
Happy New Year!
