Emerald: 2013 Pantone Color of the Year

Pantone has released the hot new color for 2013! It’s called Emerald and today I wanted to show you some of my favorite ways to incorporate it into your home, with of course some paint suggestions.

Paint Ideas:

Emerald Green by Krylon
Emerald Isle by Benjamin Moore
If you are thinking of painting anything Emerald Isle, Benjamin Moore recommends coordinating with these 4 colors:
Baby Turtle
Spanish Olive
Ebony King
Revere Pewter
Is Emerald going to make a visit into your home this year? What do you think of it? I like this color, but to be honest I love it more for fashion then my home, but really love seeing it in others.
Especially here. 🙂 Have a great day everyone!

  • I love the color but I would have to agree with you. I like it more in my wardrobe and not my decor. I am gearing up to use Revere Pewter on my walls in my main living areas so I might think about adding some emerald with a few accent pieces but nothing to permanent.

  • Goody! I love green! Emerald green is not something I’ve used much in my decor, but I’m open to trying it! (And in jewels, emeralds are one of my favorite stones–right up there with sapphires. I don’t have any emeralds, but I think they’re beautiful)

    • Richella I know you love green! That post you did on green being God’s favorite color? Loved that and think of that often. So good to hear from you – I hope you are doing well!

  • I wasn’t sure about emerald when the announcement was made, but then I looked around my house (mostly my closet) and realized how much I really do love it. I’m thrilled that you put together this post–just this morning I was wondering about paint colors because I would like to paint the interior of our back door emerald. I will definitely check out the Benjamin Moore. Thanks!
