Emerald Envy

 In case you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t heard, Pantone has chosen emerald as the color of the year for 2013. I personally am a huge fan of this choice as I think it’s such a gorgeous color (and I’m not going to lie, it makes me think of the Wizard of Oz and the Emerald City just a little bit). It makes such a statement in fashion as well as in the home. It can be vibrant, rich, and unexpected depending on how you use it, and I’ve been seeing some great ideas pop up on Pinterest lately. Here are some of my favorite inspirations for how to use this beautiful shade: 

Green dining chairs are the perfect way to bring Pantone's Emerald home.

    love emerald! seriously glad it is the color of the year. it looks great as a dress or a clothing item but translates well into a living room as a decor item

    This was such a fun post, although I'm not sure I'm a fan of putting this color in my home. I can certainly appreciate the beauty of it.
