Pantone Color of 2013 – Emerald
We have to admit that we love a trend, but often in our homes we avoid them because trends come and go so quickly. Unlike a pair of pants or a new top, upholstery and drapery can be expensive, so it’s hard to commit to the Pantone Color of 2013, emerald green for 20 years in a couch or drapery panel.
We found these great Emerald green fabrics at the Boston Design Center on our visit last Tuesday! Pillows and valances are a great way to change your room and update it to be on trend. They are inexpensive compared to the rest of your room, and easy to change.
Here’s a few ideas to incorporate trends into your home without breaking the bank.
- Keep your walls and expensive pieces neutral: Beige, brown, grey, etc.
- Choose less expensive items to be trendy: pillows, valances, accessories, etc.
- Don’t over-do it: A little bit of emerald green goes a long way.
