Do you know what Pantone is? It is a company that deals with the color matching system concepts to all industries like fashion, home decor, plastics, architecture or paint. It sets the tone for accurate color communication, from designer to customer or manufacturer, across a variety of industries.
The 2013 color of the year is EMERALD:
Emerald is brilliant, sophisticated, luxurious and luminous. It's considered regenerative, as it is the color of growth and new. It sparkles and fascinates, it represents healing and unity. Emerald brings a sense of rejuvenation , renewal and clarity, and I think that is needed nowadays. We need to heal and to reinvent ourselves, maybe 2013 will be a new begining fo all of us. This universaly appealing tone translates easily to fashion and home decor interiors.
I love love this color!! I like it so much because it represents spring, and I was born in spring. It seems healthy, I love nature and I absolutely crave for pops of color in my life! And my eyes are green!! :) This color makes me happy!! And emerald green is such a deep color, it adds dimension and creates a happy decor!! Here are some images that caught my eye:

Sojournerstorybook-great look- only two green accent armchairs make a lush decor
The two armchairs I plan to "steal" from my mom's have a luch rich dark green velvet upholstery and they are soo soft. I was planning to reupholster them, but I could easily go for a black and white living room with emerald green accents in the chairs and drapery. I'd love curtains made of a rich malachite fabric.
So, do you like emerald green? Would you incorporate it in your home? Do share!!
