The Color that will rule in 2013

Pantone color trends 2013

Do you every wonder how trendy colors come about? Last year (2012) one the hottest colors in fashion, home decor and crafts was tangerine orange.
This year the new color that will dominate is emerald green. Who are the color gods that determine what will be the popular fashionable color and have so much influence on the rest of us?

The company that determines world wide color trends is called Pantone and is headquartered in New Jersey. Every year they announce the color of the year based on trends seen on the fashion runways, and on the red carpet. Pantone sets the industry standard that all follow, they are the absolute kings of color. Check out their beautiful website to learn all there is to know about color.

So expect to see more emerald green in craft projects, wedding, clothing, furniture etc. this year.
