‘emerald 17-5641′ pantone 2013 color of the year

 

 

the color company pantone has selected ‘emerald’ as the color of the year for 2013.
it has been described as ‘lively. radiant. lush…a color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.’

 

leatrice eiseman, executive director of the pantone color institute® says:

 

the most abundant hue in nature, the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum…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.’
