Pantone Announces Colour of the Year

The Pantone Color Institute has announced the Color of the Year for
2013: Emerald 17-5641….Lucky for me this is one of my favourite colours.

“Most
often associated with brilliant, precious gemstones, the perception of
Emerald is sophisticated and luxurious. Since antiquity, this luminous,
magnificent hue has been the color of beauty and new life in many
cultures and religions. Also the color of growth, renewal and
prosperity, no other color conveys regeneration more than green. For
centuries, many countries have chosen green to represent healing and
unity.

“The most abundant hue in nature, the human eye sees more
green than any other color in the spectrum,” said Leatrice Eiseman,
executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “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.”
