The experts at Pantone Color Institute have spoken. Emerald is the colour of 2013.
“Green is the most abundant hue in nature—the human eye sees more green than any other colour in the spectrum,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. “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.”
