Pantone Color of the Year 2013 is…..

12 Dec

Emerald Green! I am thrilled by this as its my birthstone color  but its a gorgeous rich color that is really difficult to use in interiors without it overpowering rooms. Too much and you could end up with a front room looking like the Wizard of Oz’s castle!

Here’s my favorite pin-spirations of people using emerald-green in their homes in a chic and tasteful manner…..

What do you think of this year’s color? Would you put any emerald-green accents in your home or is it too overpowering for you?

    I don’t think it’s too much. It’s a beautiful color. My walls are currently orange and it looks amazing. Maybe I can add some emerald green as well. I wonder if I can build some custom green furniture 🙂 I know of a site that builds custom but not sure about emerald green…

    I just found your blog and loved reading this. I’m hoping to do my living room in green and your pictures show it can be a great colour when used wisely 🙂

    I’m going to follow your renovation with interest – I’m just starting to do up my London terrace and writing about that too – hope you don’t mind if I blogroll you so I can drop back in and see how you are progressing!
