The Colour For 2013

Almost as much of a tradition as Christmas itself, it is during the cold December months that a colourful glimmer of what to expect next year is announced.

As I’ve covered previously (here and here), Pantone have made their annual announcement and I give you the colour for 2013: Emerald (or Pantone 17-5641, if you prefer).

Pantone Emerald

After not really seeing that much of this year’s recommended Tangerine Tango, Pantone note that “the prevalence of green has been steadily rising for several seasons now”, already reinforcing that that this year’s selection is a more accomplished one.


Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.

Executive director of the Pantone Colour Institute, Leatrice Eiseman, explains the choice as the most abundant hue in nature: “the human eye sees more green than any other colour in the spectrum. Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world. This powerful and universally-appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors.”


So, grab yourself  a limited edition Emerald mug to sip your morning brew, or a 17-5641 iPhone 5 case to be be sure you start the new year right on trend.
