Emerald

I was a tad surprised when I saw that Pantone had chosen Emerald as Color of the Year for 2013. {click link to read more} Generation Q had some interesting thoughts on the subject this morning.

Needless to say, I was pleased when daughter dear presented me with an official Pantone swatch so I know exactly what we're talking about here. I took it into my stash closet, and though I have a nice stack of greens, not many like this. Interesting indeed.

Yup, don't think I own anything in emerald, but apparently it's a trend already being seen (where?!)

I was a bit surprised about emerald being chosen, but I am thrilled. It's one of my favorite colors!

Svetlana said...

hmmmm, not my color, for sure. I'll see if I can warm up to it over the year.

Green of any sort is a colour I use veeeeery little. Maybe only second last to brown. I really liked the trend of orange last year!!

I love it, but have none in my stash. I wish I had more clothing in this color, so pretty!

Annabella said...

Well green is my favourite colour - I love it, but emerald? I'm not convinced.

Margaret said...

I liked last years color better. Not a big fan of emerald. Now if it were lime green that would be a different story.

Carol said...

I definitely am a green person, but necessarily emerald.

Did you see these cute tree ornaments? Pick your Pantone!

I am going to have to look around for any fabric or other thing that colour, it is not my favourite, nor is it the colour of an emerald (that is a green that just makes me smile every time).

I'm sort of against anyone picking a colour of the year.....maybe I'm just crazy.

It's funny to me how their shade of emerald just doesn't say "emerald" to me. It seems a little too tame for that title, somehow...

Kirsten said...

My favourite colour is green and I really love the Emerald shade.

Katie said...

Hmmm not my favourite colour by far. Not awful though, maybe in a good combination it would work for me....
