Pantone has released its color choice for 2013; Emerald! According to the press release from Pantone, last year's Tangerine Tango was a spirited, reddish orange that provided us with an energy boost. This year's Emerald will continue to promote a sense of well-being through its vividness, while promoting balance and harmony.
"Most often associated with brilliant, precious gemstones, the perception of Emerald is sophisticated and luxurious. Since antiquity, this luminous, magnificent hue has been the color of beauty and new life in many cultures and religions. It’s also the color of growth, renewal and prosperity – no other color conveys regeneration more than green. For centuries, many countries have chosen green to represent healing and unity." (Pantone, Press Release, 12/6/12)
