The color wizards over at Pantone have announced the “color of the year” since the early 2000’s. They make this secret decision by convening twice a year, in a European capital. A secret meeting of representatives from various nations’ color standards groups is held and after two days of presentations and debate, they choose a color for the following year. The colors sometimes match a zeitgeist regarding a global mood, or even seem to the be the hue “de rigueur” of fashion and home decor.
The color for 2013 is a lively, radiant and lush green – EMERALD. A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony. Emerald also has royal and fantastical connotations.
