Emerald Green – Interior Design Color Of The Year 2013
Emerald – a lively, radiant, lush green, is the color of the year 2013. It’s a color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony. From interior design to fashion, take note of emerald green. Emerald green offers a deep and dramatic flare to any room or space.
Emerald green is a classic, historical color that’s symbolic of richness and royalty. It’s our most abundant color in nature and is both optimistic and comforting. Emerald is a color that can work with pretty much any decorating scheme. Unless your house is mostly red and Christmas-all-year will be the look if you add the green, you’ll find a way.
Emerald green evokes the vibrancy of nature while at the same time conjuring a jewel-toned richness that can’t be denied. Whether you picture a faceted gemstone, the ridges in a sample of malachite, or your favorite plant when you gaze upon an emerald space or accent, you’ll love incorporating this vivid shade into your interior.
Perfect with beiges, browns, grays and other neutrals, it’s a wonderful accent to blues and many pastels and other greens. That would include emerald with yellow, orange, and even other greens. That can absolutely work. Pink and green is an all-time color combo. Teaming with red might be the exception. But that too can work if you add some beiges and browns to complement the red and green. Color theory supports that color opposites work together.
We suggests rejuvenating interiors with emerald paint, accents and accessories in this jewel-like hue which can create a luxurious feel in an entryway, powder room, dining room or study, and bring life to a living room as an accent wall or as a splash of color to the kitchen and dining room areas with emerald dinnerware, stemware and appliances.
Although it’s a very decorative, emerald green is exquisite color in rooms that have a great source of natural light. However, in dark interiors it seems a bit depressed. Used in rooms that have high ceilings, it has the power to visually reduce the height of the walls.
