Color Inspiration: Emerald

I haven't done a color feature in a while so I thought I would share with you the Pantone color of the year.
If you want to check out the other color features  I've shared so far follow these links:


 Every year Pantone comes out with a new color of the year. {Pantone is the leading expert on color}.

     So for today's color feature I thought I would share with you the color for 2012: Emerald! For some reason the theme song to 'Wizard of Oz' keeps running through my mind! ;)

I can't say I'm a huge fan especially since I can't imagine emerald mixing well with my current aqua color scheme. So how about something more doable?

I love the color in this application! :)

Here are some other great options:

Now this last one is my favorite, by far. This is a look I could totally embrace!

Oh I love those curtains and pillows!

Are you feeling it? Me, not so much. Its a pretty color in the right applications but it still feels very pool table~esque! 


  1. So so pretty. I've always been a fan of this color. Always.

  2. Beautiful color, it's so sharp and deep! Love it! Love the last picture!

  3. I really like the color of green you have used in the rooms , so different but outstanding
    Thanks for sharing

  4. I love your emeralds much better than the pantone one, theirs looks a little washed out to me (and I'm a HUGE green fan!) Stopping by from BNOTP! Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. Loving all the emerald! I need to go pillow shopping for an instant update!

  6. I'm with you, I'm not really a fan of emerald. Don't really know why Pantone always chooses colors that are so bright. But in the last photo I could embrace it, too. With soft greys and beiges, it's doable.

  7. I like home design for my home and I look it as a part of interior design

  9. These designs are really inspiring. I love the way each and every part of home is designed in excellent way.
