Every year the Pantone color gurus choose a color as the trend and inspiration for the year….
…and the color for 2013 is Emerald!
So how can this color be added to a room and what other colors can you pair it with? Great questions, let’s find out!
I thought for fun I would create an Emerald paint color palette to show how this color can really transform a space!
I used the Sherwin Williams ‘Chip It’ tool to turn this living room picture into a collection of Sherwin Williams paint colors.
As shown here, it can look amazing when combined with neutrals:
These emerald drapes look stunning with the dark grey walls, whites (floor, chair upholstery and fireplace tile surround) and blond colored woods (chandelier, mantle and chair legs)!
It really looks like the color of an Emerald stone!
At the Pantone website Emerald is described as:
"Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty
that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony."
Although I don’t think I’ll buy emerald drapes, I’m going to try to add this color in my home somehow, although I am not quite sure how yet!
Do you think you’ll try Emerald in your home this year?
