When Pantone speaks, everyone listens! Pantone is the world-renowned authority on color. From designers to manufacturers to retailers to customers, Pantone is the one everyone looks to for color trends. And with that being said, the new color for 2013 is “EMERALD” aka #17-5641.
“2013 is all about a vivid, verdant shade of green that enhances our sense of well-being further by inspiring insight, as well as promoting balance and harmony,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.
Although there are many other exciting hues in the color spectrum this season like African Violet, Monaco Blue and Lemon Zest, the newly crowned green is said to focus our energies on growth renewal and prosperity.
I could definitely use a huge dose of renewal and prosperity. Therefore, I will be searching for items in this color not only for myself, but for my customers at Roadkill Ranch & Boutique as well.
