Emerald Named 2013 Color of the Year

Last year’s Tangerine Tango has been danced off the floor by 2013’s color of the year—Emerald, a vivid verdant green, according to Pantone, a global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries.

Green has long been viewed as a color of well-being, balance, healing, unity and growth. In its jewel presentation, it is sophisticated and luxurious. And its pervasiveness in nature makes it a color that is prevalent in nearly every culture.

Greens appear in the Pantone fashion color report this year as a fresh tone—extraordinary when paired with white, and equally beautiful in softer versions like grayed jade.
