The Pantone Institute have named their colour of the year for 2013 as Emerald Green. This is a luscious shade of green, full of glamour and intrigue, and over the past few months has been the favourite evening gown colour choice of many celebrities including Kate Middleton.
The question is how can we use it in our interiors? Some may not want to, and I suspect it may be a love or hate colour for many people. For me it is a colour of optimism and depth giving a moody opulence to a room.
This Cole and Son Wallpaper would make a wonderful backdrop to a dining room, used on all walls not just as a feature with dark polished dining furniture and lots of antique silverware.
Luxurious silk drapes to frame a window, drawing the eye out to a garden beyond.
