Tell Me Tuesday…BAM or SLAM!? Emerald Green

SLAM! for last week’s topic Upside Down Christmas Trees

Have you heard?  Pantone has once again picked their color of the year, Emerald Green.  On their site, it is described as lively,  radiant, lush, a “color of elegance and beauty.”

How do you feel about 2013′s color of the year?  Are you a fan?

    Bam, I think its fresh and interesting and can go with a bunch of different styles. Love it. (Probably won’t use it, but still love it)

    Huge slam! I can’t wear emerald green because it makes me look like I have the flu so I don’t decorate with it either.

    BAM! BAM! BAM! Just one problem: I had just decided to paint my bedroom this color–because it’s kind of a grassy green, and the million floral paintings, etc., I want to decorate with will look wonderful against it. BUT I hate to use trendy colors–in just a couple of years I might be thinking: WHY did I use emerald green? EVERYbody has it!

    SLAM? Maybe???

    The thing about the “Colors of the Year” is just that… it’s a color of the year. I’m all about throwing it in as an accent, but nothing permanent. I just think that color would get on my nerves after a while (as the orange from 2012 did).

    BAM! BAM! BAM! I’m like the little guy on the Flintstones – I love, love, love Emerald Green. Being almost 100% Irish (and super proud of it) might not hurt! The first photo of the Emerald Green wall made me salivate. In the near future, we are planning to purchase my parents’ home – my childhood home, and I hope to make it my “Grown Up Home” wherein I hire someone with whom I can work who can help me reign in my mania, yet also help me move a bit outside my comfort zone. I hope to have Emerald Green worked into the plan.
