As you may recall, the Pantone Colour of the Year is Emerald Green. The halls at High Point seem to be flooded with colour choices, many of them bold and bright. Emerald tones are certainly among the mix, as shown by some of the favourite finds of the Style Spotters.
What a great little piece from Century Furniture! And super versatile for your interiors.
The Greek key detail is popping up in many showrooms and on all sorts of textiles and accessories.
Currey & Co: Dimitri Secretary
Pinned by: Kelly Kole
An update to the traditional secretary, this one from Currey & Co., the Dimitri features quirky red coral-like handles that pop against the otherwise high lacquer look.
This is not traditionally a style I would choose, but there’s something eye-catching about this bold-print fabric. The green might not be quite as dark as a true emerald, but in combination with the muted browns and grays that balance out the colour story, it’s beautiful!
Go and find some emerald you love!
Official “colour of the year” selections are being announced by all the major paint companies. Based on trends at High Point, there was not one consistent colour. Rather, manufacturers were showing bursts of colour in carefully chosen accessories. The paint companies, however, have been announcing their selections. Following are the 2013 Colour of the Year selections for Benjamin Moore and Dulux.
Lemon Sorbet, 2019-60 (Benjamin Moore)
Benjamin Moore is offering a sunny outlook with Lemon Sorbet as there 2013 Colour of the Year. Per their press statement:
It’s the perfect transitional colour between the mid-tones and saturated colours seen in today’s home furnishings and the softer, lighter pastels which are emerging for 2013. This beautiful yellow hue harmonizes with other trending pastels in the mint, coral, pink, blue, and vanilla families. Uplifting without being overpowering, lemon sorbet (2019-60) is the ideal home paint colour to complement any décor.
Inspired Violet, 90BB 09/186 (Dulux)
Over at Dulux, they’re thinking indigo. Inspired Violet, a deep, dark blue with an infusion of violet, is their 2013 Colour of the Year.
“Next year’s stand out colour can best be described as a robust, intriguing blue with a purple tinge,” said Martin Tustin-Fuchs, Brand Director for AkzoNobel, makers of Dulux paint. “It’s a colour that emits a feeling of tranquility and stability in the midst of our increasingly hectic lives.”
