Every year the famous color source known as Pantone releases their anxiously awaited color of the year. For weeks before the big color reveal, designers, planners, and artists everywhere speculate and formulate guesses on which perfect shade they will choose. Then the day comes, they finally announce their pick for the color of the year and the design world — from wedding planners to fashionistas — goes wild with inspiration and ways to incorporate the “it” color into every aspect of your life. This year’s color has been especially exciting for all those design lovers out there. What is the color you ask? Sophisticated, elegant, bold emerald green. Since day one, I’ve been just as obsessed as everyone else with a taste for the creative and I’m always on the hunt for the perfect emerald green accents to add to my dining room (now that I’ve finally decided on what area is deserving of this perfect green).
