Look of the Week: 2013's Color of the Year

Did you know Pantone dictates a "Color of the year"? The influence affects everything from fashion to interiors and decor (even nail polish). This year's color is Emerald. What do you think? Here are some inspiration interiors that we think got it right, starting with this emerald and white bathroom, above.
Love that both the table set and pendants are green!
Works in a mod setting, too.

A limited color palette keeps this design simple.

How to introduce emerald (or any bold color) into your home? Try it as an accent wall, or bring in emerald accessories. Still too much of a committment? Maybe try baking a cake like this :)
