No doubt Pantone's 2013 Color of the Year, 17-5641 Emerald, will be speckled all over the Golden Globe's Red Carpet this Sunday. The radiant jewel tone is often thought of as luxurious and effortlessly chic-think Angelina Jolie's emerald pear drop earrings from the 2009 Oscars (stunning!). Aside from fashion, emerald is a popular hue in interior decor; Habitually Chic author Heather Clawson has a great post with eye-catching shots of emerald interiors.

I'm loving emerald paired with gold or as a statement color with an otherwise black ensemble. Here's a collection of emerald pieces that are getting me excited for this lively color (original layout here):
