It’s official. Pantone announced yesterday that Emerald is the color for 2013. I’ve always loved emerald, especially since it is my birthstone. The deep color exudes richness. Paired with other dark accent colors like navy, charcoal, or black, it really makes a statement. Think Angelina circa Oscars 2009 when she dressed up her black Elie Saab frock with those uber gorgeous Lorraine Schwartz emerald teardrops. Yep, now we’re talking. Look how the color way works above in that living room designed by Miles Redd. Kinda sick, right? Kudos Pantone for picking a gem of a color!
