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?

  6. Bam! LOVE it!

  7. It’s wonderful and lovely Definie Bam!

  8. 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.

  9. BAM! It’s fresh and rich all at the same time.

  10. 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!

  11. 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).

  12. I love it! It’s a BAM for me.

  13. Definitely SLAM

  14. Slamola! But could be okay in small, unlacquered doses.

  15. In small doses.

  16. It’s not one of my favorites—
    but like anything, it totally depends on the application!

  17. Love it in smaller doses as a pop of color in a room of neutrals with hits of black. It’s like adding a plant to a room, it brings the space to life. Now if only I could find this green in fabric readily available for a pillow or two…

  18. Too intense unless it’s in very small doses.

  19. I love it!! Emerald green is my favorite Color!!

  20. Slam…. not a big fan. Maybe in small accent pieces.

  21. 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.

  22. Bam! Very pretty ~ but I’m the same with trendy colors, I like using them where it’s easy to change out when the next ‘color of the year’ hits!

  23. Slam! To ‘in your face’. Reminds me of 1970′s

  24. Shannon Roughgarden says:

    SLAM I have an adversion to green!

  25. BAM! To a green lover…emerald is drool worthy.

  26. BAM when it’s just a little bit here or there, like the dining room chairs that are posted…
