Green has always been one of my favorite hues. The liveliness it brings to interior and outdoor spaces, and fashion is something that I crave. Thus, I was incredibly excited when Pantone announced that Emerald was the color of the year for 2013. Now, people across the blogosphere have been blogging about this since the announcement late last year - I actually started pulling items for this post in early 2013. But, with the cold weather, I just wasn't inspired to complete the effort. With Spring just now starting to pop through the cold spells, and bring life back to my dark and cold world, I've been inspired to revive this post. Enjoy!
