{it's easy being green: pantone's color of 2013}


The verdict is in ... the color of the year for 2013 was announced by Pantone last week. Their pick? Emerald green:
 
I for one am excited! And I think some of us may have seen this one coming, it's been everywhere in fashion for the last year or so, malachite has made a strong apperance on the design scene, and there were even predictions that green may have been the pick back in 2011!
 
 
 
 
I fell for these pants from the J Crew fall 2012 collection, and ever since I spotted Taylor Swift's emerald earrings I've been smitten! Two great examples of how to add this color to your wardrobe.

My fabulous sponsor Joya carries these gorgeous malachite pillows for only $45! I'm looking for an excuse to add a pair to my home.

So what do you think of Pantone's choice? Are you embracing emerald? Did you see it coming? Or did you have different predictions for the color of 2013?

It's such a yummy colour, I've been adding it slowly to my home and wardrobe for the past 6 months, my engagement ring is an emerald cut diamond but I would love an emerald.

I am really loving this color. Happy Holidays Nancy!

I was a little surprised by the color, but it is gorgeous so I'm not mad at it! lol. I think it's harder to work emerald into your home than into your closet, though. Check out my post on emerald ensembles (3 looks)! I just posted.

I was so glad to see your post today mainly because I did a post a few days back on emerald green; not because I thought it would be the en vogue color of 2013 (and I hope it is) but because I have always loved it! We even used one of the same images. Love. Love. Love.
Thanks again,
Rebecca

I was so excited to see such a rich jewel tone take this honor! With the new Gatsby movie coming out and the surge of 1920's/Art Deco touches, I suspect the trends in 2013 will be incredibly lush. Can't wait!
