Will The Real Emerald Green Please Stand Up?

Friday, December 7th, 2012

I am a bit confused on this new color story. As you have heard this past week, Pantone announced the color of 2013 as Emerald Green:

Here is my problem- doesn’t that sample above look teal to you? When I picture the color emerald green in my mind, this is the color I see:

And this:

Emerald green dining room.

My emerald green does not have that much blue in it. A cleaner and brighter yellow green is how I would describe emerald green.

To confuse me even more, here is a Pantone product coffee mug advertised:

PANTONE 2013 Color of the Year Mug – Emerald

To me, that color looks turquoise. Not anywhere near emerald green. When I envision emerald green, I think of a jewel-toned color like this headboard:

And these walls:

This is the color emerald green I am falling for:

Now look at these headboards below that are listed as being emerald green:

They look turquoise/teal to me. What do you think??

This is emerald green to me:

Do you think of emerald green when you look at this picture below:?

I do not think so. Maybe a couple of the plates on the back wall. Can someone explain this?  My emerald green:

emerald green door!

What are your thoughts? Do you agree with me or do you think I am not seeing something? This stuff bothers me! :)
