Last year when Pantone announced "tangerine tango" as their color of the year, I wasn't that excited. Orange has never been a favorite of mine, so I was kind of ambivalent about the whole thing.
But THIS year. This year it's a totally different story.
Emerald! Aside from purple, this shade of green was my favorite color growing up. I still like it a lot, and making this collection reminded me that I have almost nothing this color in my house or closet. How did that happen? Methinks it's time to get some emerald spray paint...
This collection isn't the most affordable group I've ever put together, but I love all of the picks and couldn't resist. My favorites are the shoes ($203) and sofa ($1399), and that dress ($144) would certainly get a lot of wear. I think the green of the gloves ($49) would look nice with the gray of my coat, and even though that wall sconce ($640) is totally wrong for the style of our house, I still dig it. The earrings ($95) have a great Art Deco flair, and the belt ($48) and tray ($78) are great pops of color.
So what do you think of emerald? What's your favorite thing to have in this color? Did you like last year's color better?
