Whats the hub-bub Bub? It's only a color you say...
Well every year those sneaky little folks over at Pantone have the ability to change our world with just one simple pick of a color...
It may mean nothing now but by the end of the year you will be seeing it ALL over the place...
So let's welcome Pantone #17-5641 color of the year 2013

So how are you going to incorporate Emerald into your life?
Baubles, home decor, clothing or maybe even a pair of fabulous shoes...
Whatever the case may be..
It will definitely be making its way into our lives.. 


  1. I love the way you paired emerald with the other colors. visually gorgeous post, Lu. I wouldn't have thought I'd like emerald so much but now I'm warming up to it ....

  2. ah! love!! i am so thrilled for an emerald year. and... i have no idea if this will work, but i must try to share another emerald photo. though, in this case, the bird, himself, is more of a forest.

    hope all is wonderful with you!
