Emerald - 2013 colour of the year

19 Dec 2012

Emerald is an opulent green that enhances our sense of well-being by inspiring insight as well as promoting balance and harmony.

Emerald kitchenware and accessories can be used to introduce some colour into the heart of the home.

Often linked to brilliant, precious gemstones, Emerald is also associated with sophistication and luxury.

Since ancient times, this luminous, magnificent hue has been the colour of beauty and new life in many cultures and religions.

It is the colour of growth, renewal and prosperity and no other colour conveys regeneration more than green.

For centuries, many countries have chosen green to represent healing and unity.

Leatrice Eiseman of the Pantone Colour Institute says green is the most abundant hue in nature and the human eye sees more green than any other colour in the spectrum.

She says as it has throughout history, multifaceted Emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate.

Cushions are a smart way to introduce the colour Emerald into your home.

“Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today's complex world. This universally-appealing tone translates easily to home interiors." 

Emerald for Interiors

Enhance your sense of well-being at home by rejuvenating the interior with Emerald paint, accents and accessories.

This jewel-like hue will create a luxurious feel in an entryway, bathroom, dining room or study, and bring life to a living room as an accent wall.

Add a splash of colour to the kitchen and dining room areas with Emerald dinnerware, stemware and appliances.   

Emerald for Fashion

The prevalence of green has been steadily rising for several seasons, especially in the fashion and couture markets, and even on the red carpet.

Appropriate for every occasion, Emerald's classic elegance makes for striking and irresistible women's formal and everyday wear as well as accessories.

Emerald for Beauty

Equally harmonious on the cosmetic colour wheel, Emerald dramatises all eye colours as it beautifully enhances green eyes, is compatible to blue eyes, emphasises the green undertone in hazel eyes and intensifies brown eyes to make them appear deeper.

Emerald is also a perfect complement to peaches, pinks, roses, ruby reds and aubergines – offering a variety of lipstick and blush options. For those who want to sparkle and stand out, Emerald is the perfect punctuation point in nail colour because of its complementary nature.
