When one mentions the word “emerald,” many people conjure up thoughts of the Wizard of Oz’s Emerald City. It makes sense that this lush shade of green was selected for this beautiful fictional setting. It also makes sense that Emerald Green was selected as the color of the year by the Pantone Color Institute, since it goes hand in hand with elegance and luxury. Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, notes that “green is the most abundant hue in nature,” which makes it the ideal color for home decorating. As an accent color, Emerald Green brings vibrancy to any outdoor or indoor space.
Staying on top of this color trend, R.H. Peterson recently introduced its new Diamond Nuggets in Emerald Green. This rich, deep green fire glass, adds sparkle and luster to fireplaces and outdoor fire features.
Capel manufactures outdoor and interior rugs that feature Emerald Green. A classic tile pattern from the Middle East and northern Africa, Arabesque from Capel is one of designer Genevieve Gorder’s go-to mosaics in flooring. By switching mediums and using it on a rug, it adds some spice to any environment.
