Happy New Year! What better way to start 2013 than with Pantone’s Colour of the Year. A year on from 2012’s Tangerine dream, 17-5641 Emerald Green takes up the mantle of colour of the year – and we couldn’t agree more. Take inspiration for your celebration in a myriad of ways – emerald green lends itself to lush tropical greenery in your flowers – whether it’s centrepieces or bridal bouquets. Think succulents or traditional white roses with an abundance of foliage, or our personal favourite, magnolia’s. Contemporary and classic all at the same time, emerald green is a rich jewelled tone that works well against a calming backdrop of white for maximum impact and refined elegance.
