Emerald Inspiration

Emerald has been touted the color of the year for 2013.
Hmm.  Admittedly, I was less than impressed when I first learned the news.  Reminds me of 1995.  But it has turned into a great pursuit of all things lovely and emerald.  My favorite pairing is emerald and lime with a hint of teal.  Not with burgundy.  Please.  Again, 1995. (But if you're a fan of this "classic pairing", I have a nice set of Denby dishes to sell you!)
However you decide to incorporate the color of the year, remember that it does not have to be an all-over statement.  More impact can be made with subtle pops of color, ombre versions or clever pairings as seen above.  What do you think about emerald; yeah or neah?
