Rejuvenate Your Home in 2013 with Pantone's Colour of the Year

To kick start the year I'm exploring the potential of Pantone's 2013 Colour of the Year.  The global authority on colour announced last month that they would be waving farewell to the fiery enegy of Tangerine Tango and embracing Emerald as their colour of choice for 2013.


Formally known as Pantone 17-5641, this vivid green is said to "enhance our sense of well-being by inspiring insight and promoting  balance and harmony", according to Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.  Emerald green has long been symbolic of new life and regeneration in many cultures around the world, so what better colour to help bring new life to your home interiors!

Like the gemstones themselves, Emerald is a beautiful, luxurious hue.  You can really bring a sense of sophistication and a splash of fun to your living room with an Emerald inspired feature wall.  Keep sofa covers neutral so as not to overpower your room.  Whites and charcoal greys complement the look beautifully.

For a more subtle update,  you can choose Emerald accessories against a white backdrop.  This will give your new finds real stand out! Frames, mirrors, clocks, cushions and throws are just some of the items you can use to bring this on trend colour into your home.

However you decide to embrace the 2013 Colour of the Year, may it live up to its symbolism and bring you a sense of well being and prosperity throughout the year and beyond!
