Seeing {Emerald} Green!

This morning as I was watching LIVE! With Kelly and Michael and I was just about bowled over with excitement when they announced that Emerald Green has been declared the Pantone color of the year for 2013! I immediately texted Natalie. As two fair skinned, dark haired Irish gals, the deep and beautiful emerald has always been a style staple, and I knew she would be as excited as I was to know that it was finally getting its due!

Emerald is such a great neutral, yes, a neutral! It works with just about every color out there, and it is beautiful for all seasons. Around here we have been lovingly using emerald green this past year and a half on a few projects you may remember…
