The year of 2013 will sparkle like the Emerald City. Pantone’s color of the year for 2013 is Emerald. Pantone coins Emerald as lively, radiant, and a color of elegance and beauty. 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.
I have always loved emerald green. My bride’s maid dresses were emerald green. Now you know, I really like emerald green. I look forward to using one of my favorite colors this year-I will sparkle all the way to the Emerald City.Source: Pinterest
