CHICAGO, December 6, 2012. With green destined to be the color for 2013…why not be a trendsetter this holiday season by giving green gifts. According to Pantone, the self-proclaimed color authority, Tangerine Tango, is so last year. Pantone has chosen Emerald Green, the lively, radiant, lush green color often associated with brilliant, precious gemstones, sophistication and luxury, as the color of the year for 2013.
This is the 10th year that Pantone has picked a color of the year and they take their job quite seriously–literally combing the world (their words, not mine) looking for color influences from art, fashion, travel and other socio-economic conditions.
According to Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®.“Green is the most abundant hue in nature – the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum plus the color translates easily to both fashion and home interiors.”
So click away on the slide show below for 10 green gift ideas that will go a long way to make everyone on your holiday list ready to head into the New Year in style… and those not on your list green with envy.
