Color Story | Emerald - Pantone's Color of the Year!

So today my obsession with Pantone continues with this year's choice for Color of the Year! In case you hadn't heard, earlier this year Pantone announced Emerald as the Color of the Year for 2013! And I for one, couldn't be more thrilled. Because what's not to love? Emerald is such a gorgeous color that is truly filled with so many lovely possibilities. Wouldn't you agree?

Emerald pairs effortlessly with nice neutrals like crisp white, ivory or even beige. I think what I love most about the ideas above is the fact that it's a mix of styles, both modern and vintage. Those balloons! Can we all just take a look at those fun and festive balloons? It's the perfect touch of whimsy if you ask me! Not afraid to make a statement? Why not wear a statement necklace like the one above? So what do you think? Are you gushing over this year's Color of the Year like I am? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
