Emerald-- Pantone has named emerald as its 2013 color of the year. A color that was huge in the 1980's is making a comeback but this time it is a bit more vibrant. Of course we have all love emerald green for jewelry and clothing but in interiors? Well even a skeptic like myself has been proven wrong. I design neutral interiors, live in a pretty neutral home but every home needs a pop of color now and then. Below is how I would bring a little of this color into my own home.
1. Brighten up your front door by painting it Benjamin Moore Amazon Moss 2. Love the glass tumblers from Zara Home 3. Update those old wooden planters with a coat of emerald stain--complete look with topiaries 4. Bring this trend into your kitchen with colorful cookware like this dutch oven 5. In decorating with Emerald, a little goes a LONG way. In a neutral living room this pair of lamps would take center stage. Definitely a splurge!!
