Obviously I am an excellent color forecaster & pride myself on predicting the new trends in all things design. Or the truth might just be I really like this color & painted our chest of drawers emerald green months back because I thought it would look good.

Either way, trend or not, I am still in love with our Dresser & think that Pantone made a great choice making Emerald Green the color of 2013.

What color is Emerald Green?

emerald tones mixed in with an array of other tones of green, but see how well it sits next to teal blue

Emerald Green lives somewhere between Kelly Green & Hunter Green.  A true deep saturated green with slight blue undertones.  Perfectly shown in this Vintage Van Cleef cocktail ring.

Personally, I like incorporating Bright Greens with neutrals.  Greys, Blacks, Whites & of course Metallics all compliment this color.
emerald green + gold
& when used en masse, it becomes a neutral itself.
Even if you go over board, lots of emerald can still work!
Emerald green!
Incorporating this color into your home can be done in multiple ways.
