Emerald, Pantone Colour of the Year 2013

It's so late at night in Sydney right now, 11.21pm to be precise and for the past god knows how long I have been saying, "Right I'm off to bed".  But then I get distracted and start doing something else.

With loads of new products and designers launching this past week, including city art prints from nickprints, designer rugs and designer cushions from Xavier&Me and stunning luxury silk scarves from Bay & Fyfe, I thought I would just take a quick peek to see what is happening in-store.  When I looked at Google Analytics, I couldn't believe just how many people that were browsing the Everything Begins online store at this time of night.  We have customers in over 18 countries so many different time zones, but the thing that got me is that each and every customer in-store as I looked was in Australia (I guess everyone else is in Monday morning meetings!).  Wowsers, that's some dedicated shoppers.  It's times like this I wish we were a bricks and mortar store, so that I could see you all and say hello.  For anyone that knows me, they'd tell you, I love to chat!  So sitting here at my desk right now, I give you a big wave and a big hello and really want to say thanks so, so much for stopping by, you truly make it all worthwhile.

So what else is distracting me right now?  The latest cover from British interiors mag LivingEtc featuring Emerald, the Pantone Colour of the Year.

Just a few weeks back on February 1, Pantone announced Emerald as the Pantone Colour of the Year.  In the coming weeks and months we are set to see a whole lot more Emerald, the colour of 2013 gracing the pages of glossies and blogs around the world.  However, this spread from Living Etc has to be one of the first I've clapped eyes on.

My eyes were immediately drawn to the little Emerald cushion on the chair, because you know what, we already have some absolutely gorgeous Emerald interior products in-store and some I reckon would look even better in your home!  No messing around around here, Emerald's in?  Then get it in!

So yes, we reckon this little Emerald stunner would have looked quite at home on that there chair!  Go, on, take a peek at this stunner of an Emerald Cushion from Everything Begins designer Xavier&Me right here
