Emerald: 2013 Pantone Color of the Year

Pantone has released the hot new color for 2013! It’s called Emerald and today I wanted to show you some of my favorite ways to incorporate it into your home, with of course some paint suggestions.

Paint Ideas:

Emerald Green by Krylon
Emerald Isle by Benjamin Moore
If you are thinking of painting anything Emerald Isle, Benjamin Moore recommends coordinating with these 4 colors:
Baby Turtle
Spanish Olive
Ebony King
Revere Pewter
Is Emerald going to make a visit into your home this year? What do you think of it? I like this color, but to be honest I love it more for fashion then my home, but really love seeing it in others.
Especially here. :) Have a great day everyone!


  1. I love the color but I would have to agree with you. I like it more in my wardrobe and not my decor. I am gearing up to use Revere Pewter on my walls in my main living areas so I might think about adding some emerald with a few accent pieces but nothing to permanent.

  2. Goody! I love green! Emerald green is not something I've used much in my decor, but I'm open to trying it! (And in jewels, emeralds are one of my favorite stones--right up there with sapphires. I don't have any emeralds, but I think they're beautiful)

    1. Richella I know you love green! That post you did on green being God's favorite color? Loved that and think of that often. So good to hear from you - I hope you are doing well!

  3. I wasn't sure about emerald when the announcement was made, but then I looked around my house (mostly my closet) and realized how much I really do love it. I'm thrilled that you put together this post--just this morning I was wondering about paint colors because I would like to paint the interior of our back door emerald. I will definitely check out the Benjamin Moore. Thanks!

    1. That's awesome! Let me know how it turns out Carrie!
