Celebrating In {emerald} Green

As most of you have probably heard by now, Pantone has named emerald green Color of the Year for 2013! Which must mean it’s going to be a good year around here, considering it’s our signature color. Coincidentally, I had already been planning a tabletop post (for tomorrow!) all in shades of green and white…

There’s something so fresh about this combination, especially in a rich emerald…

For the tabletop, I wanted to keep things simple, playful and modern – you’ll get to see it all tomorrow! But, tabletops aren’t the only place I’ve been thinking of adding more green.

As I mentioned in my office update post last week, I’m contemplating some wall paint… and what’s more obvious than choosing green!? So, I’ve been scouting colors at Valspar where I discovered my last favorite paint color. With their ‘love your color‘ guarantee, if I don’t like they color, it’s no biggie – I’ll just try another! If I don’t like the first one, they offer a complimentary replacement color! I’m thinking ‘stilettos’ sounds pretty spot on. Something like this…

Gorgeous and rich and perfectly jewel-toned, right? I think it would look especially great as an accent to the rest of the white walls and my camel-colored chairs. Any other suggestions for paint colors?
