Emerald Green: A “Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty
that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.” – Pantone®

The color “Emerald” is a lively sophisticated hue that reads positive and healing energy, it unifies other colors, like nature’s lush greens does. It is a sophisticated, luminous color which is why designers have used it for years for it’s classic and elegant striking hue.   It introduces clarity and inspiration, perfect for an office space or rooms that will be utilized for long periods of time.  The  jewel-toned emerald color is universally appealing. To name a few, it’s used in home goods, to fashion, to automotive, to technology products.

I love “Color” so I’m excited about this Emerald green for next year’s 2013  {COLOR OF THE YEAR}  :)

How to decorate a room using a bold color?

Tip: Start with an inspiration, it could be from an art piece, a rug, or even your favorite dress or shirt.  Pick three colors [max] from your inspiration and build upon that to achieve a cohesive, simple and balanced look in your room scheme.  Once you feel confident add more colors sparingly around your room using accessories etc.   If you are not so savvy in choosing your paint colors, try using Benjamin Moore® They have loads of design ideas from decorative paints to how to choose the right color.

Decor Idea Board | Blue Hues

Hello readers!

Trending in colors from summer to fall and into next year, deep blue hues.  I love how the deep blue combo looks with contrasting crisp whites, very nautical perfect for a coastal modern interior space. I put together this decor board a while back and thought I’d share it with you today. Also, I am currently designing a 3D mood board at #Olioboard and will share that with you later this week.  How would you use this color in your home decorating?

Thanks for stopping by!!
