2013 is going to be fabulous! Just fabulous!!
I didn't think it would get so fabulous so quickly, but yesterday I found out thatPantone have chosen Emerald 17-5641 as the Color of the Year. (colour in Australia).
Well my knickers have certainly gotten themselves in a twist over this one.
You see, Green is my colour.
My colour! Everyone who knows me knows that I love Green. It's my colour!
I adore Emerald and I'm quite partial to Malachite.
I'm not jumping on the bandwagon either as I rode this baby in a long time ago!
From someone important at Pantone.......
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.
In a room full of colour, my eyes are always attracted to something that is Green. It makes me feel calm, and it can be in differing shades from mint to jade.
I love window shopping and I always manage to take photos of random green items that take my eye.
And of course my bedroom, bathroom and craft room are painted in Antique White USA and Sage Green.
Do you have a favourite colour? Are you a black and white devotee? Are you as obsessed as I am?
