Shake things up in your home decor with bold new hot colors for your home this year. Are you tired of hibernating in neutrals? Pantone has released the 2013 color report. The color forecast this year is all about jewel tones, brights and retro-modern pastels. This is your style, restarted. Renew your home with color.
Emerald green is the color of the year and we are seeing this trend all over the place. From paint to textiles to decorative accessories, this vibrant hue is what’s in for 2013.
“Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.” Emerald green signifies renewal and growth. It is sophisticated. Whether you use this color in broad strokes or in select pieces there are limitless ways to incorporate this hot color in your home decor. Here are some of our favorite ideas.
This glass mosaic tile with varying shades of emerald, kelly and celadon green would look fresh and modern on a kitchen back-splash when paired with stainless steel appliances and rich brown hardwoods.
We love this tile surround in this bath. It brings in elements of nature and is refreshing.
If you like emerald green but don’t want the long term color commitment of a bath or back-splash why not use the color more sparingly on key furnishings or accessories? This emerald green ikat print would look beautiful on a pair of throw pillows against a neutral sofa.
Think of neutrals as the starting point and then take it to a brighter place. Update everyday basics and solid patterns with pops of vibrant emerald green. The graphic chevron drapery panels and green throw pillows really energize this living room. The black side table and lamp ground the space and keep the color from being over-powering.
Some people may argue that “it’s not easy being green” but we beg to differ. While not for everyone we love this year’s hot color trend for your home and think Pantone got it right. What do you think about the color forecast this year? Are you green with envy?
