Green Design

Green Design~ That’s what you will see a lot of in 2013. Yes, sustainability will be ever present in design and specifically interior and exterior design; however I’m referring to Pantone’s color of the year, EMERALD GREEN!

Drum roll please - Here it is if you haven't already seen it a hundred times. Very pretty!

[feature color=”icon-black” title=”” icon=”none” ]According to Color Wheel Pro: “Green is the color of nature. It symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility. Green has strong emotional correspondence with safety. Dark green is also commonly associated with money. Green has great healing power. It is the most restful color for the human eye; it can improve vision. Green suggests stability and endurance. In heraldry, green indicates growth and hope. Green, as opposed to the color red, means safety…” Some other shades of green: Aqua is associated with emotional healing and protection. Olive green is the traditional color of peace.[/feature]

I adore lacquered walls and this one is exquisite! Via Coastal Living.

green watch

This watch is a sure show-stopper. Chatti Patti certainly would NOT cover it with a long sleeve. Meant to be flaunted.

green shoes

Okay, not my style, but you get the idea.

emerald earrings

You must admit, it is a very rich color! AND definitely my style for the right occasion.

emerald gloss walls

I absolutely love the vibrancy of this room and the combination with the fuchsia pink chairs and roman blind.

If you want to play it a little safe, entertain the idea of some accent pillows in a shade of emerald green.
