{COLOUR STORY: emerald green}

So I thought since we’re half way through the year that we should revisit Pantone’s colour of the year, and my personal favourite, emerald green. God I love this colour. The fact that it happens to look fabulous on this red headed green eye gal has nothing to do with it. Ok maybe a little. But I also think it’s stunning to use in home decor. It’s such a rich & bold colour. It can be trendy, classical or modern. Take a look.

Feeling a little green with envy? How amazing is that green wall in the first photo or that spiral staircase?! If you’re not ready to make a huge & permanent commitment to this colour, how about just adding a pop of it?

It’s that time of year…Best of Lists and predictions for the upcoming year. Pantone just released the official colour of 2012. And the winner is……….Tangerine Tango!! I’m okay with this since I happen to love this colour. It’s also the shade of my favourite lipstick. 

Pantone definitely is an authority when it comes to colour as is fashion. It’s one of those chicken/egg debates. Who influences whom? Does the fashion industry set the trends or is the fashion industry stealing trends from the mega cool hipsters out there? Either way, hope you like to Tango.

And of course, Pantone offers giftable goodies in the newest “it” colour. 

And for the design nerds out there – here is the breakdown if you’re just dying to use Tangerine Tango on your next project:
