Design in Mind: Color of the Year

Do you know the 2013 Pantone color of the year?

It's Emerald.

Do you know who Pantone is? Well, they make color. Especially color we use on the computer. Learn more here.

There are always lots of articles, pins, and posts about the color of the year. We love thinking about how the color would look in someone's home. Pantone usually picks a bold color, which may not be for everyone, so we've included some rooms that incorporate the color in small ways (chairs, a pillow, a cabinet). Emerald may be bold but we think it's looking particularly fresh and elegant.

Enjoy Emerald!


Don't you just love this color on the front door? Against a white house it's bright, fun, and different yet still refined.



Some suggestions for Emerald paint colors:

Benjamin Moore Clover Green

Sherwin Williams Shamrock

Sherwin Williams Direct Green

And if you can't make the leap to Emerald paint, Farrow and Ball's "Drag" Wallpaper #1254 is a nice subtle version of Emerald.
