It’s that time of year again, and as we bid adieu to the oh so fun and feisty Tangerine Tango, Pantone has declared the new reigning color queen for 2013 – Emerald! Pantone describes the green as “Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.” Sounds lovely doesn’t it? And so In honor of this passing of the crown, D has selected a few spaces that incorporate green in ways that range from the subtle to the bold and the everyday to the unexpected. Enjoy!

Below – Hotel du Marc owned and run by the Champagne house, Veuve Clicquot. Originally the home of Madame Clicquot herself, the space has since been renovated by Bruno Moinard. Note the faint shimmer of the green entry.
