You might have heard by now that Emerald green has been chosen by the colour giant as the Pantone Colour of the Year for 2013. This marks a bit of a departure from the last few years, where the colours chosen were bright as evidenced by 2012′s colour of the year, Tangerine.
What we get with the beautiful Emerald green is a truly rich colour that can bring a really romantic and sophisticated feel into your home. If you haven’t already, soon enough you will begin to see the Pantone Colour of the Year popping up everywhere from home design magazines to fashion runway shows.
But, how can you incorporate Emerald green in your home? We will show you how.
Paint the Walls
If you are not afraid of using colour in your home, then why not go all in and paint the walls in one of your main living areas Emerald green?
Not only will this truly make a statement, but as you can see, combining the Emerald green with a muted palette in furniture and accessories will really make the green pop.
If you are someone who doesn’t love to change your entire home based on the latest trend, then consider just adding a few accessories here and there that are going to feature the Pantone Colour of the Year?
Hanging curtains on the wall in Emerald green, or placing throw pillows, vases and other types of materials will still bring in an authentic look without having to change up much of your standard home furnishings.
Buy Bold Furnishings
Another way to truly make a statement and incorporate the Colour of the Year into your home is to purchase home furniture that is going to feature that rich Emerald colour.
This could especially be a great move for those who rent flats and cannot paint their walls beyond white or grey. Bringing in an emerald sofa is going to really bring a dramatic colour into the room, but still allow for a light feel because the rest of the room includes such muted colours.
Include Emerald in Your Home
Now that you are able to visualise the various ways that you will be able to bring the Pantone Colour of the Year into your home or flat, consider the approach that is going to best suit you.
Remember to always keep your own personality in mind when designing your home, and determine the ways where you can simply compliment what you have with Emerald to giving your living space a truly fresh contemporary look and feel.
