It's official, it's 2013!

... and you know what that means, it's time for Emerald to take the spotlight! Many of us know that Pantone released 2013's color of the year a few weeks ago, I was giddy with delight when they said it was Emerald. I really had my hopes up for it.

So, I have been eagerly waiting for 2013 to arrive so I can show off some of my favorite emerald things!

Mary McDonald showcases emerald in a beautiful way in this dining room. I love how much of an impact emerald has here, without being all over. 

A few years ago, when I walked into Dream Home at the Merchandise Mart, I was smacked in the face with emerald and loved every square inch of it. I swooned over the foyer design by Summer Thornton Design. I have been in love with the Malachite wallpaper she used and have been dying for a place to put it, hmmm... maybe in my new home??

To me, the above kitchen island is a bit brighter than your typical emerald green hue. However, I couldn't help but share the image, I think it's a great example of getting a little daring with color in your kitchen and I think this concept would translate well into emerald!

So what are your thoughts for 2013's color of the year? Me? I adore it. I am going to cover myself in it more so than usual!

Here's to a happy, healthy and successful 2013, now go out and paint it EMERALD!
