Pantone Color of the Year 2013 Inspiration Board from Sarah Hearts

I’ve been a fan of Pantone for awhile. Well, it’s kinda in my genes. My mom was formerly a graphic designer and my dad’s been in the printing industry forever so I grew up knowing what Pantone was and it’s importance to the printing industry). Last week I gave my dad a Pantone ornament for Christmas and as soon as he saw the color he said, “186, my favorite!” before he even looked at the color name on it (which for all you design nerds, yep, that’s a bright ruby red)!

So each year I get super excited when Pantone announces the color of the year. I just think it’s always fun to see if that color pops up throughout the year. This year the color is Emerald (17-5641) so I searched the web for my favorite finds currently available in this lovely hue.

Are you a fan of this year’s color? What was your favorite color of the year? I was a big fan of 2011’s color, honeysuckle.
