Emerald: Pantone's color of the year for 2013

I'm sure most of you have heard by now about Emerald being chosen for Pantone's 2013 Color of the year but I figured I'd add it to my little space on the interwebs just in case you didn't ;)

I must say, it certainly beats the tangerine from last year. Orange is very difficult to successfully work into a space and still get it to remain classy instead of tacky or childish. Emerald on the other hand is definitely classy and has a very regal feel about it.

I recently painted my dining room emerald green (about 3 months ago) and am getting ready to repaint again since I didn't like it! hahe, I don't know if that makes me ahead of the times, or behind the times for not liking it. Actually I like the color, I just feel it doesn't flow with the rest of my house. It feels too formal.

Here are some inspiration photos of people who've rocked emerald and I must say, every one has that feeling of royalty about it. What do you think?

I thought I'd throw these in just for fun. After all there's no better designer than God Himself! :)
