The Official Color of 2013

By Justin Lin on December 7th 2012

Pantone Official Color 2013

Are you ready for this? The official color of 2013 is…Emerald! Okay, you can sleep at night now.  Per Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute:

“Green is the most abundant hue in nature – the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum…As it has throughout history, multifaceted Emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate. 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.”

The color of 2012 was Tangerine Tango in case you missed it. Prep your eyeballs to see a lot of emerald colored products, weddings, advertisements.   You think the timing of this has anything to do with the new Oz movie?
