“Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.”


Pantone has announced its new Color of the Year for 2013! Each year Pantone chooses one color from their vast collection as ‘the color’ of the year, what a gem!


What the new color of the year means

Emerald green and its counterparts represent life and nature. It signifies growth, health, and renewal. It has the same calming effect as the color blue, but can also be used to bring new energy to an otherwise dark space.
