Inspiration: Emerald Green

What’s inspiring me right now?  Emerald Green!  Pantone, the master of all colors, declared Emerald (specifically, Pantone 17-5641 Emerald) to be the 2013 Color of the Year back in early December.  Despite being the “it” color for more than three months now, emerald green home decor remains difficult to find.  The brighter shades of green, such as lime, apple, grass, and avocado, have long dominated the home furnishings market.  Nonetheless, a thorough search can lead you to some gorgeous items.  Hovering between green and blue, emerald is an enchanting and unexpected hue.  Add some simple emerald accents to your existing decor, or go full impact (wallpaper, paint, lacquered woodwork, etc.) for a genuinely bold room.
