Emerald is a color that is bold, elegant and versatile, so it’s no wonder that it is the Pantone 2013 color of the year! Pantone chooses the color of the year based on inspiration from art collections, popular travel destinations and artists.
The vibrant color is expected to be a big hit at the 2013 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS), which is being held April 19 through 21 in New Orleans. KBIS offers an opportunity to learn about new trends and up and coming home products, and also provides plenty of interior design inspiration.
If remodeling is on your New Year’s resolution list, then check out these easy tips on how to incorporate Emerald in your living space.

  • Rugs. This is a great option especially if you have hardwood floors. An eye-catching rug can add a pop of modern color to an entryway or outdated living room.
  • Glassware. While repainting your kitchen may seem a bit drastic, Emerald tumbler ware is an elegant and unique way to add some flair to your dinner parties and holiday gatherings.
  • Candles. Combine the Emerald and metallic trends by purchasing candles that have a green and glossy sheen.
  • Pillows. Update your family room with some emerald throw pillows. Don’t choose boring solid color pillows, but rather mix and match Emerald green accents.

Adding some new Emerald accessories is a great way to draw attention to your favorite rooms, so this is one trend you won’t want to miss!
