New year, new color! Emerald is the hot new hue, according to the color experts at Pantone. Not that we’re surprised. We had a sneaking suspicion it would be big – we’ve been coveting it for months now on everything from rugs to pillows to lighting! Inspired by nature (the rolling hills of Ireland, we surmise?), it’s a welcome change from last year’s livelier color of the year, Tangerine Tango. We love that Emerald Green is lively but, because of its correlation with serenity in nature, also imparts a sense of balance and harmony. And any color that can do that is a hands-down winner in our book.

It’s hot, it’s bold, it’s Tangerine Tango – the Pantone Color of the Year for 2012! This vibrant shade of reddish orange is not for the faint of heart, but in small doses it can light up your interiors and wardrobe with touches of spark and fire. We especially love the way it injects a jolt of dynamic playfulness to kid’s rooms and accessories. Look for this sizzling color to make a major statement in the coming year, dancing its way into everything from linens to furniture and more.
