Pantone Colour of the Year - 17-5641: Emerald Green

It goes without saying that Pantone is the authority on colour. Every year, the company puts forward its pick of Colour of the Year. Last week, it announced the colour of 2013 to be Emerald Green (17-5641). 

Sophisticated and Luxurious, emerald is one of the true jewel tones. I have to admit I do love jewel tones (rich bold and dramatic purples, yellows, red and blues), but they aren't colours we often use in weddings - where many people opt for something a little softer.

Believe it or not, Pantone's announcement will have an influence on the products you see next year, and it is also likely to influence wedding decor. In 2012 Pantone named Tangerine Tango as the colour of the year, and after styling a couple of orange weddings this year, we think we're pretty likely to see some Emerald hitting our portfolio in 2013!!

To get the ideas flowing, we've pulled together a mini-inspiration board.

What do you think of Emerald?
Will you be including it in your wedding?
