Every year, Pantone®, a colour system for designers of all kind, comes out with their colour of year. Every year, I get so giddy when I find out what the current year’s colour is. This year, I’m even extra giddy as the 2013 colour of the year is one of my favourite colours right now. It’s vibrant, romantic, and yet subtle enough that it’s that great colour to add for a nice splash. What is it?
Emerald! Pantone® quotes it as ”Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.”, which I think is dead on.
Watch clothing stores and home decore stores which is where these trends usually start. I have a strong feeling that Emerald will make it’s way to graphic design, and the wedding industry with a loud hurrah this year. I’ve already been seeing it used as inspiration on sites such as Pinterest.
Having an Emerald theme’d wedding? Would love to hear about it in our comments section!
