Just in time for the festive season to start Pantone announces that the color of 2013 is Emerald Green – Pantone 17-5641.

Here is what pantone says on it site

“Green is the most abundant hue in nature – the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “As it has throughout history, 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.”

I also just featured the color green in the latest issue of “Moyo Design Magazine” (pages shown below) Read story and see full magazine here

A few years ago when my landlady was getting a new door to the building, I persuaded her to paint it green as we are facing east, it was the best color energetically to attract all that good energy. I have had a green door for both my apartments here in the USA. 🙂

In my home/art studio

Green is a color I have a lot of in my home, but is more of a subtle lighter shade to help me relax. It also looks wonderful with other colors such as pinks and purples (2 of my favorite colors in the home).

My rugs on the floor are a gorgeous shade of light green which really bring a relaxing lift to my space.

Here is a photo of my something I love dearly – in my abundance corner of my studio. Paired up with red to attract some of that abundance energy!

I also have a whole wall dedicated to all colors so it’s like a rainbow in my studio wherever you turn!

I’ve not used a huge amount of green in my artwork. I have a love/hate relationship with it when i am painting – I have to admit, purely because I am not always sure what hues or shades to incorporate..I love the light greens.


In my wardrobe

I realized I only have one cardigan in green and that’s more of a sea green color, more than emerald so I guess I’m not really a fashionista for 2013! Ah but I DO have a green handbag!
