What do you think of when you think of emerald?
I think of Elizabeth Taylor’s resplendent jewels, peacocks, and the Wizard of Oz (blogger buddy Kim also posted about the upcoming OPI and Urban Decay Oz products!) Emerald is this year’s color as announced by Pantone. It isn’t punchy, it isn’t bold, but it is undeniably elegant.
â€œGreen is the most abundant hue in nature â€“ the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum. Emerald, a perfectly balanced green, is a mix of warm and cool, which makes it so versatile and flattering to many skin tones,â€ noted Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. â€œSymbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in todayâ€™s complex world.â€œ
I love the idea of renewal and rejuvenation and here so I hope that this colors brings that to you too friends!
Here are a few favorite instances of emerald in the home and closet:
