Color Inspiration: Bold and Brilliant Emerald Green

Share It

The right color palettes can influence style and form — they don’t have to be limited by a single design aesthetic that the color is trending in. A bold or subtle tone on the walls can impact a space, no matter how the rest of the room comes together. You truly can dissect color inspiration from anywhere and implement it into your home in a personal, stylish way.

Case study: Emerald green. We love it. There’s something welcoming, lively and sophisticated about this color. It’s both surprising and familiar when used as a foundational color in a space. These examples show green used beautifully in a range of styles and contexts — transitional, traditional and minimalist styles have all embraced this vibrant hue. Click through and start thinking how to bring it into your own home. –Lauren

    Such beautiful examples. You would think emerald green would overpower the space but when used strategically it is surprisingly fresh!

    I really wanted to paint my room emerald green so I brought some swatches home. It really has to have the right light. In my room it ended up looking dirty and dark for about three quarters of the day.
    It looks lovely in those rooms.

    The emerald green looks especially nice under the counter. Nice contrast with the light wood in the stools.
