Home Decorating with Pantone's Emerald Color of the Year 2013

Irwin Weiner ASID - Companies like Pantone create standardized colors that help extend our color vocabulary across a variety of artistic industries. Two of those industries are fashion and interior design, and they're interconnected.
Pantone selects a color of the year - this year it's Emerald 17-5641 - and this and related colors are used to tell stories and create moods that will soon determine what we'll be wearing and what home fashions will be popping up in stores, from decor items to appliances. We've selected four items that could help you tie Emerald, and related shades of green, into your design scheme.
