2013 Colours of the Year
Every year many companies choose what they think the colour of the year is. This year we have decided to make a blog post about some of these great colours.
1. Pantone, Colour: Emerald
Most often associated with brilliant, precious gemstones, the perception of Emerald is sophisticated and luxurious.

It’s also the color of growth, renewal and prosperity – no other color conveys regeneration more than green. For centuries, many countries have chosen green to represent healing and unity…
Emerald for Interiors
Enhance your sense of well-being at home by rejuvenating the interior with Emerald paint, accents and accessories. This jewel-like hue will create a luxurious feel in an entryway, powder room, dining room or study, and bring life to a living room as an accent wall. Add a splash of color to the kitchen and dining room areas with Emerald dinnerware, stemware and appliances….

2. Benjamin Moore colour: Lemon Sorbet
We’ve chosen lemon sorbet (2019-60) as our 2013 Colour of the Year. It’s the perfect transitional colour between the mid-tones and saturated colours seen in today’s home furnishings and the softer, lighter pastels which are emerging for 2013.

3. AkzoNoble (Deluxe Paint) Colour: Indigo
The colour of the year for 2013 acts as a visual band-aid to our hectic lives. Indigo is a striking statement colour associated with wisdom and honesty which enhances your environment.
Like the dreamy ocean landscapes hidden from everyone but deep sea divers, this colour gives us a sense of tranquillity and stability which is very restful.
