2013 Colors of the Year!

Happy New Year everyone! I like to start the new year by taking a look at the color forecast from Pantone. For those of you who dont know Pantone is the world-renowned authority on color and they issue a forecast each year as to which colors will be trending in different industries including Fashion and Interior Design.

This year’s color is color 17-5641 Emerald


Pantone Palette: Surface Treatments

“Earthy textures lay a new foundation for palettes of blues and greens,” says color expert and executive director of the Pantone Color Institute Leatrice Eiseman. One idea is to breathe new life into an existing hutch by using several coats of ocean-blue paint. Then, ground the piece with lots of white ceramic objects and natural wood and wicker.


Pantone Palette: Out of the Ordinary

This palette is quirky and whimsical. The color collection marries shades of pumpkin and bright blue with goldenrod, lime, and violet.

Pantone Palette: Footprints

This palette mixes sandy brown, vibrant tangerine, peacock blue, and fiery pink together, is not for the color shy. “It’s inspired by bright tribal tones,” says Eiseman.

Pantone Palette: Sojourn

Eiseman’s favorite palette for next year combines quiet moss green, cobblestone gray and shitake brown with vibrant fuchsia.
