Yes, a decision has been made. Last week, Pantone announced their Color of the Year for 2013, and Emerald — “a lively, radiant, lush green” — is in. (Read all about it .) Which means Orange, so 2012, is out.
Green does make an appealing color story (see this palette of images from Pantone, above), but please forgive us if we sniff a bit of a marketing strategy — Pantone bedding now available at jcpenney! Green nailpolish at Sephora! — rather than an authentic prediction. And now what is everyone to do with those orange kitchen appliances they bought just this year, when Tangerine Tango reigned as color supreme?
Fortunately, we have a much easier way to stay on-trend here at J.Falkner. Simply chose to send one of our emerald-hued birthday cards (below). We first featured these a few months ago, and here they are again, ready to join the new Color of the Year party.
