Green is known as the colour of the environmental movement. It is also the colour of nature and a great symbol of renewal and peace. The beauty about the colour green is its versatility; it is a colour which can be implemented into a summer, spring and winter design concept and also into your seasonal wardrobe. Green looks amazing worn in the summer months alongside bright colours such as yellow and blue. The colour green also looks wonderfully sophisticated when paired with browns and autumnal hues. Emerald green in particular is a powerful, sophisticated and luxurious colour. Pantone has also recently revealed emerald green as 2013 colour of the year.
For years it has been a very popular choice for red carpet events and on the catwalk.
The emerald green trend is set to be huge in 2013. It is appropriate for many occasions because of its versatility. It is a very glamorous and rich colour that many fashion designers have used in their 2013 collections. Emerald accessories also look wonderful and accessorising is a great way of implementing this trend into your wardrobe without wearing the emerald apparel. A statement bag is a great way to do this.
Emerald accents look beautiful within interiors. Emerald paint is bold but highly sophisticated and can make an appealing statement wall. A splash of emerald within the kitchen or bathroom also looks fabulous and timeless. Emerald green works perfectly with grey, as can be seen in this wonderful dining space.
“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.” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®.
Try bringing this versatile colour into your new home for a fresh look in the new year!
