1. Think Green!

    Every year since 2000 Pantone picks one color to be the color of the year. The past years have brought us colors like turquoise, tangerine, and this years color, which is emerald. Whenever Pantone chooses their color of the year, there’s always an outburst of this color everywhere! It shows up in fashion, home decor, fabrics; anything and everything. We think this year’s choice is great! It’s such a bold color, but incredibly classic and elegant all at the same time.  And with St. Patrick’s day just a couple days away, we thought this was the perfect time to talk about emerald. Just like all paint colors have numbers, Pantone’s colors do, too. The number associate with the color, emerald’s is 17-5641, refers to where the color sits in their color library.

    Some great ways to infuse emerald into your space is through accessories. Adding a vase or throw pillow in this color are simple ways. That way, if you get tired of the color, you can easily replace them! An emerald rug or drapery panels would really make a statement in any space.

    Emerald is best mixed with a neutral color palate, like in the images we show below. All the spaces look great because there’s a nice balance between the green and the neutral color chosen. Emerald always looks good with gold accents. Mixing in some navy or pale blue can look lovely, as well.

    We hope you’re on board with this color because don’t expect this color to go away anytime soon!

     Is it too early to make predictions for next year’s color?
