Pantone's colour of 2013 has been announced, and it is emerald green!
Personally, with all the brights and neon colours around I was surprised to see this particular shade of green but welcome it anyway.
This could be a sign of the sustainable impact on the world of design, as everything seems to have an organic edge and environmental inspiration behind it.
“Green is the most abundant hue in nature – the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum,” says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world.”
Whether it be in interiors or fashion, emerald is the colour of decadence, radiance and luxury so I'm sure we'll be seeing it everywhere in 2013.
