More commonly associated with precious gemstones, the rich hues of Emerald are increasingly prominent in the latest interior design. Now adorning wallpapers, home furnishings and even bold statement furniture, this expressive shade oozes sophistication while evoking a strong sense of new life and growth.
In cultures and religions across the globe, Emerald Green is known to communicate peace, balance and harmony. Think rejuvenation and restoration. Connecting you to nature and inspiring safer and securer environments. These positive psychological properties are great when creating the right kind of atmosphere in the home.
In terms of colour: Emerald is a warm, yellow-based green with depth. It’s more refined and elegant than other green hues and is the perfect choice to achieve a luxurious and warm look with your interior walls or furniture.
Emerald Green first became popular in the early nineteenth century following the creation of a new dye by mixing verdigris with arsenic. Yes, arsenic! With overnight success, the pigment was widely used in paint, wallpapers and upholstery fabrics across Europe. You’ll be glad to hear, we’re leaving out the arsenic these days.
Synonymous with beauty and wealth, Emerald Green should keep fine company (of course), mixing well with other jewel tones such as amethyst, sapphire blue and ruby red. To ensure you have a cohesive colourscheme, use accents of rich metallics.
