Color Crush | Emerald

Design & Décor

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  I thought today would be the perfect day to discuss the opulent colour, emerald.  Not many clients come to me with this colour as an inspiration, not even a couple of years ago when it was Pantone’s colour of the year, and I don’t have a lot of it in my home own, however, it’s been on my radar lately and I can’t get enough of it.  What I love about this colour is the many moods it can bring to a space.

This rich jewel tone evokes sexy and sophistication, and I especially love it when paired with charcoal and gold.

This is my favorite space!  I really love all of the textures of this room and the small amount of emerald incorporated into the abstract painting.  I wish I knew who the designer was.  That’s one of the downfalls of Pinterest.

This brilliant shade radiates when paired with light neutrals.

At first glance, I thought this eclectic space was designed by Miles Redd but it’s actually by Ken Fullk.  He mirrored the ceiling colour on the walls and lacquered them.

Who doesn’t love de Gournay wallpaper?  Chinoiserie is best in emerald, in my opinion.

If you can’t commit to an expensive or large piece, small or inexpensive accents are the way to go.  You’re not committing to the colour too much if you decide it’s not for you long term.

These table lamps give this space the perfect pop of colour.

The beautiful painted doors of Paris… perfect in almost any colour.
