Official Pantone Color of 2013

From the warm Honeysuckle of 2011 to spicy Tangerine Tango of 2012, we cool things down in 2013 with Emerald.

“The most abundant hue 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.”

Emerald. A dreamy hue the oozes luminosity and magnificence. It’s the bold color of majestic fictional cities where the weak make a pilgrimage for missing parts. It’s the color of cascading baubles sprawling the aristocratic bosom of your Great Aunt Gertrude. It’s the shade of memories longing to be forgotten swirling into oblivion and bulbs breaking through rich Spring soil, glistening beneath a late frost.
