Well, I am not too disappointed since this is my absolute favorite color in the world. I have ALWAYS loved Green. It’s probably because I have green eyes..which made me the odd ball in my blue eyed family. Sometime it’s what makes you different that you love most about yourself.
Are you HAPPY we will see tons of Emerald Green in the next year? I am anticipating a huge push into fashion, interior design, etc.
I don’t know about you, but I have ALWAYS loved the book The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald since I first read it as required reading in high school . If you have never had the opportunity to read it, go out and get a copy and thank me later. You will be swept up in a tragic love story gone wrong set in the glittering world of 1920’s wealth, jazz, and bootlegger royalty. I wish I could go back now and read it with you for the first time.
Most people have seen the 1974 movie starring hunky Robert Redford and flawless Mia Farrow. The dreamy sets and gorgeous costumes brought to life this amazing work of literature.
Well, we are about to be flooded with remake commercials now starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan (what I think is a perfect cast to take on this story) coming out in May 2013. If the stills are anything to go by, I think we are in for a real visual treat!
But how does this effect decor?
When a film or book is epic enough it infects our social subconscious and moves us to new design trends. For as long as there have been books and movies, they have been a big part in setting trends in fashion, interior design, and general “IN” Style. Think Breakfast at Tiffany’s and the little black dress with quirky glam decor or Flash Dance and off the shoulder sweatshirts with industrial 80’s neon decor.
I see Art Deco and all its flowing romance and glittering opulence showing itself again as a trend in fashion and interior design in 2013.
2012 Pantone Color of the Year was an instant internet sensation. As a Design gal, I couldn’t have been more thrilled. Hot orange in just about anything you can think of? I’m on it! LOVE the colored jeans, flashy nail polishes, bright pumps and even more loved the sofas, rugs, dinnerware that all came out in this hot color. At Customized Walls, we even customized wallpaper to match the top colors and Tangerine was one of my all time faves.
The Hot brights mixed with some very cool neutrals had the world of design just BUZZING.
We are a few short days away from our beloved Pantone calling the 2013 color of the year. Oh, what will it be? My mind keeps racing with ideas and I keep coming back to:
Monaco Blue Tech Accessories
Monaco Blue 2013 Color of the Year?
Monaco Blue Interior Design
I am all in!
What do YOU think will be the Pantone 2013 Color of the Year?
