Emeral Green is Pantone´s Color of the Year for 2013.

What do you think of Pantone´s choice this year?  I like this color
so much that I am considering using it as my blog color...how about you?

Last year´s color was Tangerine Tango.

You know this is going to make all the inhabitants of the Emerald Isle very
happy don´t you.

Ahhh green. I am an apple green, lime green bright green kind of girl. But if your emerald greens leans just a bit toward blue and is surrounded by other greens, like in the Klimt, well then it is luscious. Thanks for the links by the way- you are sweet.

There's something so enjoyable for me about seeing lots of items the same colour. I'm actually having a 'pale pink phase' at the moment but I'm becoming very seduced by these emeralds! Jess xx

It's beautiful just not a colour I wear or would use in my house :) I guess I am not a green person.

Becca said...

I love greens and emeralds! Lol AND living in the "Emerald City of Seattle" now, I think it's grand! Happy New Year!

I LOVE this color ! My very first home in Milan was totally emerald green and white all over... sounds bizarre, but it was beautiful and very soothing. Tangerine Tango didn't have much success..at least here . xx

Ja das Grün ist eine Wohltat für die Augen, aber ich hasse giftiges gelb-grün. Die Natur selbst hat so eine Fülle an Grün-Abstufungen, die mich immer wieder begeistern.

I didn;t use to be a big fan of green and now I just find it beautiful.

Liebe Cynthia,

eine sehr inspirierende Zusammenstellung smaragdfarbener Bilder. Ich habe mir sogleich eine Aquarellfarbe angemischt und werde diese ausdrucksstarke Nuance in einige meiner Bilder integrieren.
Veröffentlichung bald auf meinem blog: www.christinaweisz.blogspot.de

Viele Grüße
Christina
