2013 Color of the Year EMERALD

in Living

Pantone announced the 2013 Color of the Year, Emerald Green. I like this far better than the 2012 color, Tangerine Tango. I think (hope) we are painting our family room soon and redecorating just a tad so I may try to include some emerald green even.

For my blogging buddies the Emerald Green RBG codes are Red/0, Green 152, Blue/116. And the HTML value is #009B77.

To find out more about Pantone and their choice of Emerald for the 2013 Color of the Year visit the Pantone site. They have some great photos showing how the color will be used and other resources.

So what do you think of the 2013 color?

Disclosure: None, just sharing info I think is interesting.

I LOVE emerald green! So glad it’s the color of the year…it’s one of the shades of green I look good in.

Yes, with your coloring I’m sure emerald looks fabulous on you! I have to be a bit cautious with which greens I wear (like a shirt) because being so fair the wrong one makes my skin look green too.

Emerald sounds good to me! I was just checking out some emerald corduroys in Old Navy…maybe I should go back and get them!

Yes! Head back and pick them up and you will be at the head of the trend!

Have to say that while shades of green are some of my fav colors, this shade is off-putting to me. I prefer the orange shade! LOL

I liked the deeper values of the emerald color the most

I like the darker emerald green too. I have a couple of accents in the livingroom with this color.

I like the Emerald. I have to admit though, I’m not sure what the Pantone color pick even means. I’m not sure what Pantone is. I guess I’ve been in the dark. As for last years color the Tangerine Tango, I love it! There’s a sofa that I’m dying for, it’s very similar to that shade. Love it love it love it!

Rachel – Pantone is sort of the keeper of the colors for industry. They have the standardized color codes and systems that are used in all sorts of industries, like fashion, home furnishings, printing, cars, etc.

When I think of emerald green, I think of good luck and money. If this is 2013’s color, I think good things may be coming in the new year!

Me gusta. It reminds me of the wizard or oz

I really love this color . Most people associate money with green, I hope it is an omen to a better economy!

16 Jaclyn Reynolds December 28, 2012 at 10:22 pm

I love it! It’s very magical and earthy!

I agree with the comments about the shade. It feels too bright for me. I think of emerald green as a rich color – not a bright color.
