We Heart Color :: Emerald Envy

As many of you know, Pantone's Color of the Year for 2013 is Emerald.


"Lively. Radiant. Lush"

These are the words used by Pantone to describe this rich tone, and we couldn't agree more.

Every time we think of this color, it evokes images of striking jewels, rich silk, and lush countryside.

It's not just showing up in fashion and home decor, but in wedding details as well.
And against shades of gold and platinum, it's dramatically delicious.


If you pass by a Sephora window right now, and you'll see this dramatic color gracing the faces and nails of the models in the display.


In celebration of this bold hue having it's moment of glory, we thought we'd share a few of our projects that feature this energizing color:

One of our sweet clients had us create a scrapbook for her husband's birthday, and the lighter shade of green helped make photos and captions pop.

Mix emerald with zebra print for fun party details. These custom toppers adorned delicious cupcakes for a client's 40th birthday bash

Emerald and any variation of purple (eggplant, violet, etc.) is a classic combination, and is displayed down to the favors for this celebration.

And finally, one of our favorite invitation suites blends shades of emerald, silver, and chocolate for a combination that's elegant and fresh.

For more of this powerful and enigmatic color, check out our Emerald Envy inspiration board on Pinterest:

Do you think you'll give emerald a try this year?
