Every year, I find myself eagerly waiting to find out the Pantone chart for the colour trends due that season, and although this years choice was more of a lime shade than emerald green, there’s no denying that this rich forest colour is making a bold impression in the interiors world.
Those a bit shy of colour may find the idea of investing in something so bold a little scary, but there’s really no need. Here are my top ways to incorporate elegant emerald green pieces into any space.
A Feature Wall
Easy to do yourself and, actually, quite an inexpensive way to revamp a tired room, creating a deep emerald feature wall is really simple with a few licks of paint. I love this rich shade by trusty Dulux; it glides on beautifully and is stain resistant – ideal if you’ve got little ones with sticky fingers running about!
A Bold Green Sofa
Green sofas are going to be all the rage this season, and I’ve wanted one for ages! My favourites are the, plush velvet designs, and I’m particularly partial to a traditional Chesterfield to really add a show-stopping finish to a living room. Because I love a bit of show stopping!
If you do decide to indulge in a glorious green sofa, my one bit of advice, if you don’t like too much colour, would be to keep the rest of the room almost plain and pared-back to really let your couch take centre stage.
For decorating wallflowers, there are always subtle emerald-hued accessories. These oh so tasteful tea light holders look effortlessly chic dotted around a coffee table or sideboard.
Likewise, I’ve fallen head over heels for these striking velvet cushions from Ikea. And at this price, you can probably (definitely) invest in a handful to scatter on your sofa or bed for an instant luxurious update. Or both!
I first spotted emerald tiling on my daily browse on Pinterest. Used primarily in bathrooms, gorgeous green tiles lend an undeniably glamorous vibe to your W.C.
Matched with millennial pink, my mind instantly drifts to 1950s Miami – I’m thinking of the Beverly Hills Hotel, Hollywood film stars from times gone by, and all the other kitsch interiors inspiration that I love. A trend I’m definitely going to try in my own home.
