Still Loving Emerald


Peter Dunham - Veranda

I'm still loving touches of emerald green or kelly green in interiors. I've posted on this color HERE and HERE and it still keeps catching my eye.  Maybe I'm becoming obsessed??  I love the way these designers used it in their rooms in the House of Windsor.  Doesn't that green just draw your eye in to the space?

Anyone who was working in design in the 70's and 80's remembers these de Sede sofas.  They're kind of like a wrinkled dog.  So ugly they're beautiful????  Definitely perfect in this media room. 

Okay, back to COLOR. Doesn't the green just give this space life?


Kate Spade ads always have such great color. Emerald green is often used.




Eye Candy!!!!





Rue Magazine

So luxurious!

I'm totally obsessed with this project.  The green draperies just give so much drama and color to this interior. 

I haven't had a client who would go there yet, I'm waiting for the right one!

That last picture with the emerald curtains is such a show stopper! I always see this room around blogland but it's my personal favorite! Alright, I will admit it. I actually have green curtains in my living room so I am very partial to them! lol

Have a lovely Sunday, Carla!

Carla I am with you on this one. I am still trying to figure out where I can inject just a touch of this color in my home. Maybe just one painted piece!? Kathysue
