I can’t help but to think that emerald’s description serves as a bit of a suggestion for life in 2013. Perhaps 2013 will be a year to focus on living a balanced and harmonious life. In addition, basic color pyschology suggests that the color green invokes feelings of growth, relaxation, and rejuvenation…oh my! That being said, emerald green accents would make for a great addition to your work space. If you can, try painting a bookshelf or cabinet in this lush color. Feelings of rejuvenation and growth will reflect in your work and you will be feeling like a brainiac in no time!
