While 2012's Color of the Year, Tangerine Tango (PANTONE 17-1463) was promoted as a "spirited, reddish orange that provided the energy boost we needed to recharge and move forward," Emerald is described by Pantone as a "vivid, verdant green, which enhances our sense of well-being further by inspiring insight, as well as promoting balance and harmony."
Why Emerald for 2013?
This particular shade of green is associated with brilliant, precious gemstones, which gives Emerald a feeling of sophistication and luxury, according to Pantone. Since antiquity, this luminous, magnificent hue has been the color of beauty and new life in many cultures and religions. And being green -- well, no other color quite conveys the feeling and concept of regeneration more than green.
It's the color of growth, renewal and prosperity - something that most of us seek or could use as we try to crawl out from the economic Recession. For centuries, many countries have chosen green to represent healing and unity. "Green is the most abundant hue in nature - the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum," said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. "As it has throughout history, multifaceted Emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate. Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today's complex world. This powerful and universally appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors."

Maybe a pillow here, some wind chimes over there, and an antique ceramic Chinese garden chair. Consider little Emerald touches that coordinate with what you already have or serve to inspire an empty canvas if you are starting from scratch. If it feels right -- not forced -- do it.
