When you’re decorating your home, choosing the right colour is the most important decision you’ll make. We think that the rich emerald green hue is the perfect choice.
Rich, deep, vibrant and regal, this colour is never boring or banal and it’s a very contemporary tint. Walls painted in emerald green still lend a sense of opulence, especially when paired with other tones, such as purple, blue and sparkling red.
It is the colour of jade, Tropical forest and infinte grasslands.
The main positive psychological properties green communicates are peace, balance and harmony. It can rejuvenate and restore, giving the feeling of being connected to nature and feeling safe and secure. Symbolically, emerald green communicates luxury and elegance as in the jewel.

Using green paint, accents and accessories can bring a luxurious feel in an entryway, powder room, dining room or study.
