The Emerald City

The blogoshphere is still on fire with Emerald, the Pantone 2013 Color of the Year. I must say that I am especially happy that my birthstone color has made a comeback. I don't think it has received the respect it deserves over the years. Emerald makes me think of glamour and old Hollywood.
It's sophisticated and lush.

I think of designers like Kelly Wearstler and Miles Redd using the color. It's a bold commitment but will add a luxurious touch to an interior. Emerald definitely takes a bit of courage when decorating. This is not a color for the faint of heart.

I found these great examples on Pinterest of how to use emerald the right way. You can also check out my Pinterest board for more ideas. Enjoy!


  1. Completely IN LOVE with the color emerald! It can be a bit intimidating to some, but I love its richness.

    1. Me too! When it's done right, it is so elegant. I like your blog... I'm so envious of your travels! =)
