A rich take on hope, growth, and freshness was offered with Pantone’s 2013 shade Emerald. Much like 2010’s Turquoise, this natural stone inspired colour has long been present in building and decor. It was chosen to counteract our complex world, as Executive Director of the Pantone Colour Institute stated “Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation”. The green shade also fell in line with the growing interest in tiles’ role in sustainable construction and a focus on ‘indoor air quality’.
The tile world demonstrated its appreciation for this colour in many ways, allowing it to play the star role in various ranges, or adding a subtle and calming pop of brightness alongside neutrals.
