It Ain’t Easy Being GREEN!: Pantone Color Forecasting

Posted by

Oh. My. Goodness! Can you believe that as of TODAY we are only TWO WEEKS away from 2013?!?! And you already know how much I love New Year’s resolutions and turning over new leaves and any chance to make a fresh start, right? So it’s no surprise that I also like New Year trend predictions…especially COLOR trend predictions!

You can read all about the Pantone color of 2013, Emerald, and how I’ve incorporated bold greens into lots of design projects over the years in my latest installment of “Color Confidential” over at the At Home in Arkansas’ blog.

 

I’m extra-excited THIS year, because…well…it’s a GREEN. And green is very possibly my signature color (man! I wish there were some way to type that with a Steel Magnolia’s drawl!). When I speak in public or appear at events  people are always surprised if I wear any other color, so it’s become a kind of joke around here.

Maybe it’s just because of these headshots…

Or just because I love to collect jadeite…

Or probably just because my own home has a splash of green or two…

Or, uh, well…maybe my daughter is under the GREEN influence, too?

Well, fine! I have a green addiction! Does that mean it’s ok to act surprised if Santa brings me something special in GREEN this year?
