We Love These Emerald Accessories

(Vase by Moretti)Janet Ramin - When I think of emerald, I envision grassy rolling hills, shamrocks, and endless summer - all things fresh and hopeful. So with maybe hope in their sights, Pantone has declared emerald 2013 Color of the Year and not a moment too soon. Despite winter blues and fiscal cliffs, we're going to have a rich array of greens to enliven our interiors. Here's a couple of ideas to add emerald into your home.

Home Decorating with Pantone's Emerald Color of the Year 2013

Irwin Weiner ASID - Companies like Pantone create standardized colors that help extend our color vocabulary across a variety of artistic industries. Two of those industries are fashion and interior design, and they're interconnected.
Pantone selects a color of the year - this year it's Emerald 17-5641 - and this and related colors are used to tell stories and create moods that will soon determine what we'll be wearing and what home fashions will be popping up in stores, from decor items to appliances. We've selected four items that could help you tie Emerald, and related shades of green, into your design scheme.

Make Way in 2013 for the "New Pastels"

Irwin Weiner ASID - Are you ready to embrace 2013's new colors of the year? I'm always concerned that my clients will get too caught up in all the "Color of the Year" hoopla that paint and color forecasting companies promulgate each year. Colors don't drastically change from year to year and consumer tastes aren't necessarily wearing thin on this year's top colors, but what's constant is the design industry's need to create fashion trends and rally around so-called experts who like to tell us what's trending.
If you listen to Benjamin Moore, the paint manufacturer, you're going to go for the palette cleansing, refreshing (almost there, almost not there) color Lemon Sorbet. It's viewed by the company as a way to usher us out of our current state of jewel tones and saturated colors and into a land of fresh, light pastels. Today's featured video describes Benjamin Moore's color trend analysis, and in the next few posts, I'll go through some of the other colors of the year (see our D2S banner for the top three annointed trendy hues, and scroll down to the bottom of the page for links for more information about the three featured 2013 colors).
