Let’s hear it for Pantone

Of course, I’m singing that phrase in true Deniece Williams fashion…I mean, who wouldn’t?  It goes perfectly with the lyrics.  No, I have not lost my mind, I am just so super duper excited about this year’s color choice

But, it is for total selfish reasons.  I’m totally hiding my head in shame.  You see, we have this painting above our fireplace that I love.  There is a big bold splash of emerald right smack dab in the middle of this piece of art and I have been looking for pillows for over 2 years to bring out that color.  Insane, I tell ya.  But, there hasn’t been a ton of emerald colored fabric or pillows on the market to choose from so I’ve just been patiently waiting.  But, I have a feeling the wait is about to be over.  I am fairly certain that we will see more emerald accessories start to pop up all around us.  Yay.

So in honor of this color and it being crowned the 2013 Color of the Year, I thought I would play around with it in a design board.   I just threw some pieces together that I thought would look great in a room together…living room, sunroom, den, whatever.  Please feel free to use it for your own home.  I’ve included the sources for each item below.  If you would like to see more design boards like this on here, please leave me a comment letting me know, email me a message of a big thumbs up or pin the board itself.  This is what I like to do for fun in my spare time…you know when I am avoiding the laundry and all of my other household duties.  😉
