Emerald Color Chip PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald, a lively, radiant, lush green, is the Color of the Year for 2013.

I've seemed to notice it often takes a year or two for the Pantone color to get full swing in decor.  In fashion it's much faster.  So I've done some snooping around and found some photos you might enjoy that incorporate Emerald or or similar tones of green or just green in general.   I honestly was a bit tired of green after the big sage green fad about 10 years ago and the green and burgundy before that but I have to say these rooms have changed my mind.  I think I'm liking where this might go!  Let me know what you think!  Not all of these rooms are exactly emerald but I think they show you that GREEN is making a comeback in all shades!

Very pretty! I personally wouldn't want a whole room of emerald but the pops are really pretty. Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comment. If you like green accents you should check out a fellow Canadian blog oliverandrust dot com.
