Pantone's 2013 spring colours
Pantone Emerald 17-5641
Emerald, Pantone’s colour of the year for 2013 speaks to Mother Nature’s go-to shade. Described as “lively, radiant and lush” by the renowned colour authority, this green sparkles and energizes with its sophisticated universal appeal. Use it in small touches like picture frames and lampshades, or on a feature wall in a powder room or family room along with hits of sunny yellow or icy blue.
Pantone Dusk blue 16-4120
This easy, liveable shade works as the season’s newest neutral. Calm and serene, it offers all colours placed beside it a sophisticated, airy lift. Mutable and complementary, this hue pairs well with other soft shades in fabrics and furniture, or with zesty counterparts in more adventurous accents.
Pantone Lemon Zest 13-0756
The shade of sherbet, watery sunshine and a bouquet of buttercups, this yellow features a slight greenish cast that delivers energy and effervescence in spades. Perfect for light-filled rooms, it can be balanced out with neutral greys, moss greens and creams in patterns and prints. Alternatively, let it sing by setting it off against colour blocks of navy blue, emerald green or espresso.
Pantone Grayed Jade 14-6011
Quiet and contemplative, Grayed Jade is our new favourite shade, hands down. Easily at home in any room and with any style, this hue has an ethereal delicacy that we just can’t get enough of, whether it’s used in a soothing entryway, a sophisticated living room or a serene bedroom. All we can say is: More please!
Balance is the keyword for Pantone’s spring fashion colour palette. Working to create harmony and versatility, the colours range from brights to neutrals to offer an energizing mix with a sense of unity.
