Emerald

With St. Patty’s Day approaching and everyone talking about getting their green on, today seemed like a perfect day to talk about the 2013 Pantone color of the year – Emerald.

 I love nearly all shades of green – from the palest mint to the darkest hunter.  And emerald is right there at the top of the list.

This detail about green is awesome…

I think my love affair with green probably started the first time I watched Gone With the Wind.

How could you not love green after seeing Scarlett in this dress?
I wanted the dress. I wanted to be Scarlett. Somewhere in the recesses of my head, I think I began associating green with a plucky, strong-willed, determined spirit – just like Scarlett had.
Nearly every room in my home has some hint of green (it not a blatant display). I find the color soothing, calming and inviting.
Here are a few fun “emerald” ideas for fashion and home decor.
I seriously love the coat. As in LOVE the coat.
Enjoy!
Emerald
