I hate to say it, but 2013 is sliding downhill. Fast. The autumnal equinox hits on September 22 and, let’s face it, once you enter the “er” months, before you know it, you’re wearing a funny hat, hoisting a glass of bubbly and kissing this year bubye. What I want to know is did you let 2013 slip away without embracing this year’s “it” color according to Pantone, the Big Kahuna of color trend forecasters?
It’s Emerald. From fashion runways to living room walls, the bold green is still in for a few more months. Last year was Tangerine Tango. Next year’s is still a mystery. There are rumblings about a blue, but also a coppery tint and maybe a yellow.
Oh, and if you’re loving the Pantone Emerald shade and want it for your walls, it’s available exclusively at Lowe’s via Valspar Paint.
Are you glad Emerald is on its way out? Did you use it in your home? And what color are you rooting for in 2014? Send your photographs to email@example.com or post them on Instagram with the hashtag #AJCdiy.
