While lime is HGTV’s Color of the Month for July, its deeper, darker cousin — emerald green — is the rising “it” color. Where fashion goes, home decor soon follows, and last year emerald green kept popping up on runways. Now, it’s trending in interior design portfolios. This jewel-tone provides a rich backdrop and a touch of elegant sophistication when used for accessorizing. I hope you like some of my favorite luxe emerald green rooms that are sure to inspire.
Emerald green furnishings, combined with the screens, chandelier and moldings, take this living room “pinned” on Pinterest from stuffy to lively. My favorite element is the patchwork rug that has been dyed to bring the varying shades of green together in this space.
For a fresh coastal mix bring emerald green pieces together with turquoise accessories. This room featured in Coastal Living is light, airy and perfect for the summer season in a refreshing color palette.
For a rich look, go with your favorite shade of emerald and place it on the walls. Designer Miles Redd shows that this hue is a beautiful backdrop for a room with a mix of colors and pattern.
Emerald green has a classic look when paired with black and white. Pillows and bold green carpet are tempered by the clean black and white shades in this bedroom.
This color can also be a showstopper on a central piece of furniture. This tufted emerald sofa stands out against the bits of yellow and orange, making this room feel like a lovely jewel box.
Finally, consider accessories in emerald green. In this living room, standout pillows and a chevron curtain add a rich pop of color to complete the space.
