Pantone's Color Of The Year For 2013
This lively, radiant, lush green, is the Color of the Year for 2013.
The Pantone company of Carlstadt, NJ is the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries.
Each year they choose one color they believe will be significant in everything from t-shirts to tea kettles. For 2013 they chose emerald green.
According to Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®, "Green is the most abundant hue in nature – the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum."
Leatrice says that like the gem stone, multifaceted Emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate. "Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world. This powerful and universally appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors."
Since ancient times, Emerald 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.
