ADE: Dear Green, I’ve Moved On
Well, not entirely. The last name Greene makes it difficult to altogether abandon the color. Besides, I still really love it – especially the emerald-y, color-of-the-year-like tones. But while researching a recent blog post for the Interior Collective, I became enamored with bright shades of blue!
Perhaps I'm simply being contrarian. Pantone announces 2013's Color of the Year (i.e., emerald green) and two months later I completely switch gears. Coincidence? Hardly. I like being ahead of the trend rather than riding its wake.
While I love the old, I'm always looking forward to the new! And there’s something very new about this color’s brilliance. It's fun yet rebellious, a showstopper yet tame enough for the less daring among us. Confident, bold, and bordering shades of royal... It's cobalt blue, Sukio's Color of the Year!
Interiors, fashion, art - it works everywhere! Am I the only one? Or is cobalt blue just the kick in the fanny 2013 needs?
