At the end of 2012, Pantone announced the new colour of the year for 2013 is Emerald!!! It is a colour that is hard to miss and makes a bold statement. It seemed that everyone jumped on the emerald band wagon and the home decor sector was no exception. Whether it’s an accent in your home or a whole wall, there’s lot’s of variety. Now would I paint a whole wall or room in emerald? Probably not, but a cute accent could definitely find it’s my into my home. What are your thoughts on this colour, does it get a yay or nay from you? Just in case you’re not feeling this colour, did you know that the colour green makes us feel safe and is the most restful colour for the human eye? So before you write off green completely in your home, give it a second thought, it might end up being quite peaceful and soothing for you. In the meantime, here is some emerald inspiration!
Emerald: a lively, radiant, lush green
Starting off with small accents
Moving onto a couple of chairs
How about a dresser or armoire?
In the dining room?
How about the walls?
Even on the stairs (at least it’s only paint)
Why not the bathroom?
And of course this amazing walk in closet that I would love to have, emerald or not!
What do you think? Have I changed your mind about this calming green colour? Let me know in the comments below!
