Decorating With Emerald Green

According to color authority, Pantone Color Institute, the big fashion color for 2013 is Emerald Green. Those of us who are not married to trends never knew it ever went OUT of style. But according to them emerald is HOT this year and back with a vengeance. The more popular version might be a bit brighter, but emerald is still lovely in any shade. Here are some ways to incorporate this jewel of a color into your interiors.

Emerald wall treatments are complimented by natural wood trim and moldings.

Emerald rooms can be very pretty, but  you don't have to drench yourself in it to enjoy the trend.

A touch here and there will keep you up to date.

Black and white is a good color combination to compliment emerald green.

Just a few pillows scattered about gives this room new energy.

You can always just accessorize with it.

There are many different shades of emerald green. You can go as dark or as bright as you like. Even combine them with darker walls and brighter accessories.

There is a wide variety of fabric to choose from for draperies and upholstery.
