So in one of my last posts I said I’ll be posting every day and I failed at that, but in my defense I can say that I had a reason – a fussy baby (enough said, right?). Anyway, today I’d like to add my two cents to the topic of Pantone choosing Emerald green as the color of 2013. I already expressed my affection for this color in previous posts having no clue that this color will have such a big impact on the design scene at some point – I guess I have foreseen a trend without even knowing it :). The richness of this shade is mesmerizing, showing a whole new level of green – a dense hue that screams refinement and elegance. I like how modern emerald green feels, definitely not the boring green one might expect :).
Today I have a different kind of post. Better saying, a different kind of Spring hues. Remember when a few days ago I was all about yellows, aquas and oranges? Well, Anthropologie catalogue took me to a whole new level of Spring hues. Today I’m at emerald green, stunning teal, rich tangerine, rusted browns which scream sophisticated elegance and deep mystery.
What can be teal AND cozy? Of course a sofa! I came across a home tour with its overall color palette right up my alley (um, hello Scandinavian gorgeousness!), yet I’ve been having my eyes on a particular detail – the sofa in the living room. It’s to die for! It’s teal with hints of emerald green, it’s a leather chicness and it looks very comfy, so well, what’s not to love? (continue reading)
The first thing that came to my mind when thinking about emerald green was that it’s such a deep color, not for everybody. I mean, I’m thinking myself that I’d hardly decide to paint my living room’s walls in emerald. And maybe it sounds crazy, but I’m not sure I’d use this color in some decorative accessories at all! But I do like how it looks in other people’s homes, reminds me of the sea and I think along with an aqua blue would make a ravishing combo! Great for a fun and fancy nursery, maybe…
