Color. It speaks to me more than shape or function. I will take a turquoise refrigerator over a more practical white or stainless steel. I want a Prius more because I love that pale dragonfly green color than the fuel efficiency. I loathe white walls (unless, of course, they are used to set off colorful room furnishings). I love modern art of the styles that include arresting shades and hues, transmitting messages on a level more basic that pictures or words. I will never have one of hose sophisticated urban wardrobes I always admire from afar because limiting my color to "pops" and accessories just never pans out by the time I leave the shop.
|Pantone loves to make a suggestion....|
So, now that I have found Pantone to be stalk-worthy, what's a yarn-dyer to do? Well, besides making a pledge to buy up every color of mug and nail polish Pantone puts out, I will try to perfect this most amazing shade of green before 2014's color is announced. As a color junkie, I consider it my duty. Also, I will be seeking artistic inspiration from some of the delicious new color combinations being designed willy-nilly out there in the world. But for the here and now, in honor of color No. 17-5641, I will share a few of my favorite Emerald-graced from Etsy. Enjoy!
