Grazing for Green
Designers are embracing Pantone’s color of the year — emerald — as well as the hue’s leafy, grassy siblings, whether splashed on walls, in decorative accents, or in stylish furniture
“Symbolically, emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal, and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world.” — Leatrice Eiseman, executive director, Pantone Color Institute
