Embrace the restorative power of green in the new year. Give special attention to the color that’s going to be big: Emerald. Pantone announced it as the color of the year for 2013 at the recommendation of an international ensemble of color forecasters.

In contrast to 2012′s outspoken reddish-orange Tangerine Tango, Emerald lends itself more to meditation and reflection with its verdant vibe. It’s also masculine enough to support pre-existing relationships and shared living spaces. Then there are the other connections to the color worth noting: the Emerald City of Oz fame, the Emerald Isle for those of Irish heritage, and gemstone jewelry.
