Green is the new black. Emerald green, that is.
Pantone® recently anointed the hot new color for 2013, describing the jewel tone as “Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.” We’ve already seen bold shades of green popping up in our residents’ homes, like the rug and the accent wall in these winning shots from Equity’s recent photo contest.
The smart people at Pantone choose a different color each year, citing fashion, culture, décor and design as the inspiration for the selection. Last year’s winner, Tangerine Tango, described by even this incredibly specific purveyor of color systems as “reddish orange,” captured the hotter end of scale. The 2013 selection provides a cool counterpoint and invites a lively, natural hue into the new year’s color palate.
