Home Tones: Emerald

Dark-painted living room with emerald velvet upholstered easy chaircredit

Like Malachite, which we featured on Home Tones a few weeks ago, emerald is a beautiful green coloured mineral much favoured during the Art Deco era.

Emerald jewellery looks fabulous with diamonds and set in platinum or white gold. Similarly, in interiors, match this shade of green with brilliant white, metallics and a deep dark shade of grey.

Emerald green can give a feeling of grandeur, mystery or freshness. It all depends on what you pair it with and what type of materials you use. For instance, the velvet easy chair above makes the room ooze plushness and sophistication.
