Emerald is the Hot Color for 2013


Last year it was tangerine!  This year it’s emerald. 

Green is perfect for mountain living and “Right At Home” is delighted with this year’s color choice.  The “Pantone Color Institute” which matches colors for the home, fashion and beauty industry announced its color choice last week.

Angelina Jolie wore stunning emerald earrings a few years ago at the Academy Awards.  It is a festive holiday color and of course it’s very regal.  It is also very earthy and warms up a decor in the mountains.  When it’s white outside with snow covering, green adds a good seasonal balance.  It warms up our winter indoor living.  In our shop, we have Frasier Fir candles, fabulous table top faux trees, pottery pieces and green upholstered pieces.

Shopping consignment is truly the green thing to do.  Reusing, repurposing and recycling is Green!
