I love when Pantone announces their color of the year! Makes me start searching for all sorts of things I wouldn’t normally search for in an unusual color. Last year, not so much (because one of my wedding colors was Tangerine… way ahead of you Pantone!), but this year – totally inspired! Green is just not a color I usually choose! More of a blue-girl myself. And Emerald… well, I thought that was more reserved for Dorothy and the Wizard (I am sure I am the 74,823,000 to make THAT joke). ”Give me Forest green any day, but Emerald – meh” I thought. I think I have only ever really owned one piece of Emerald attire: this Boston Red Sox hat:
I was SO wrong! Emerald is gorgeous! I am slowly becoming obsessed! And to share this new obsession with you, here are a few of my most recently “Emerald-y” favorites:
For the paint, I am not sure exactly which color was used in the inspiration board above, but Benjamine Moore has a fantastic shade called Emerald Isle (find it here) and many other great greens as well!
