Turn a new a leaf and go green in 2013

For the year 2013, the pantone color of the year is Emerald Green. Green is a very rich color. The color of Mother Nature, Growth, Life, Renewal and Health.

You can pair green with:

  • Browns, beige, orange, mustard and gray’s to mimic the natural environment.
  • White and black to add a pop of color.
  • Purples and blues for a fun palette.
  • Metallic colors like golds and silver for a Celtic - royal effect.
  • Shades of burgundy, plum, oxblood, crimson and other colors within the berry color family.

Be very careful when pairing green with red to avoid looking like  a Christmas tree. Green and red pairings should be subtle.
