The Colour of 2014

Every year, the colour experts at Pantone choose one colour from a variety of sources like entertainment, art, travel hot spots, and more. Because of Pantone’s strong influence, the colour of the year can be seen in new products, graphics, clothing, home decor and more.

Digital scrapbookers love colour and colour trends. The colour of the year can easily be found in our community. Let’s take a closer look at this year’s colour and the colour for 2014.

2013 – The Emerald Year

This year, Pantone named an emerald green shade as the colour of the year. It evokes feelings of growth, prosperity and wealth. For some emerald inspiration, check out this pinboard on Pinterest. It’s a bold colour that pairs well with creams, browns, and blues. Here are some digital products that feature emerald as a statement accent colour:

It’s such a fun shade. I can easily see myself using it for pages about my daughter, who wears a lot of purple.
