Pantone Color of the Year 2013 is…..

12 Dec

Emerald Green! I am thrilled by this as its my birthstone color  but its a gorgeous rich color that is really difficult to use in interiors without it overpowering rooms. Too much and you could end up with a front room looking like the Wizard of Oz’s castle!

Here’s my favorite pin-spirations of people using emerald-green in their homes in a chic and tasteful manner…..

What do you think of this year’s color? Would you put any emerald-green accents in your home or is it too overpowering for you?

    I don’t think it’s too much. It’s a beautiful color. My walls are currently orange and it looks amazing. Maybe I can add some emerald green as well. I wonder if I can build some custom green furniture :-) I know of a site http://www.dayoriscustom.com that builds custom but not sure about emerald green…

    Or keep it streamlined with plain green curtains that make a strong, rich statement. And oh my, that wall color!
