Green with envy with your friends fabulous living room?  Return the favor and cure those Winter blues by incorporating Pantone’s color of the year into your home.  If you haven’t already, you can now “go green” and incorporate (drumroll please….) Emerald into your everyday living spaces!

Only second to blue as a common favorite color, green is known for its soothing nature. It reflects the natural world around us so its a great way to bring the outdoors in!  While most variations of green are lovely, Emerald (specifically PANTONE 17-5641) is a great color to brighten up any space.  We don’t recommend painting a whole room, but select one wall and paint it Emerald as a nice accent.  Too much for your taste?  Find some great throw pillows or decorative items that include Emerald in them – that will give you just enough pop of color.
