And the color is ... green!

It's official.... the color is green. Emerald to be exact. Pantone announced the color of the year for 2013 yesterday:
"Green is the most abundant color 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®. "As it has throughout history, multifaceted Emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate. 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."

Not loving the green. Can't believe it is making another come back--maybe with current styling it will look refreshed.

I'm a big fan of Emerald green in small doses. I think green in general makes people feel comfortable and at ease more so than some other hot colors we've seen in past years.
