Pantone's Color Of The Year

Pantone’s color of the year, Emerald, happens to be one of my
favorite colors, right up there next to chartreuse and indigo. The
lively, rich color conjures images of a classic movie, “The Wizard
of Oz” with Emerald City sparkling in the distance, as Dorothy
and her 3 friends make their way towards the enchanted city. (As a
Kansas native, it was mandatory to watch this classic movie. Most
children would be scarred for life when the flying monkeys entered
the scene, myself included. The Emerald also happens to be my
birthstone, so I can technically say I haven’t jumped on the Emerald
color bandwagon. I was just patiently waiting for the brilliant color
to make its way into the hearts of others. Below are images of how
the lush color can be found in all aspects of nature. Enjoy!
