I’m not sure when Pantone became the dictator of “color of the year”, but since I’ve had a close relationship with my PMS chip books for over a decade, I secretly love that Pantone has become the leader of color for fashion, interiors, home goods and industrial design. For 2013, according to Pantone, looks like Emerald is the official winner. Start pulling out those swatch books folks, we’re going Emerald!
