Pantone recently named Emerald Green the Color of the Year for 2013. “Green is the most abundant hue in nature – the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute in a press release. “Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world. This powerful and universally appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors.”
You can use this and other shades of green to bring new life to any room in your home. A green sofa or living room chair will provide a comfortable spot for you to kick back and relax. Emerald green accents in your bathroom or bedding on your queen bed will help you begin the day refreshed and with renewed energy!
Since you do see so much green in nature, these are great cues as to how you might pair the shade with other colors. Browns are a natural, but picture the purple and green from a fragrant lilac bush or the shocking contrast of red as in a bouquet of roses. Greens can be so versatile that you can easily add to an existing interior or create a whole new look centered around the color.
However you decide to incorporate this vibrant hue into your home, you’ll have a vibrant new look that’s a break from the complexities of today.
