I know it is difficult for anyone to envision green as the dominant colour in your décor, but guess what? It does not have to be so. A drop of emerald green in your décor is all you need.

Last season we saw emerald green gracing the fashion runways worldwide. This year, the colour has worn the hearts of many and it was recently named the pantone colour of 2013, this time for interior décor.

I know it is difficult for anyone to envision green as the dominant colour in your décor, but guess what? It does not have to be so. A drop of emerald green in your décor is all you need.

House plants
One of the easiest ways to add emerald flair to your home is with plants. Plants can add a bit of lushness and hominess in one fell swoop. They can also help detoxify your home too. There are different types of house plants. By the way, if live plants are a bit too much for you, why not get plastic plants instead. This way you will still have that drop of green in your home. Green has a way of lifting the mood of the entire décor.

House paint
This might sound far-fetched, but paint green one wall in your home to create a focal point in a room. Colour blocking green and yellow creates a dramatic effect in the entire décor. A painted emerald wall with white walls would also make a refreshingly bold statement. Remember to choose greener paints no matter what your painting scheme.

Furniture

Curtains

Since green is a natural shade, curtains in this colour make a room feel airy and spacious. Emerald green curtains infuse a living space with vitality and elegance. Mixed with a variety of soft patterns and bold colours found on the sofa, ottoman, and throw pillows, the effect is magnetic. Vases filled with fresh flowers are natural accents for the earthy green hue.

Accessories

Use emerald green as an accent colour with your throw pillows. These can be placed on couches and chairs. Throw pillows add pizazz, so you can go with plain or patterned pillows with emerald green in large and small prints. Round, square, or even diamond shape, emerald green pillows can provide the added splash you have been looking for in your home décor.

Dining area

This area is one of the simplest of all, but it has to be attractive for your family and visitors to enjoy what is on their plate. Invest in emerald green placemats and table décor that complement each other. Glasses, plates and bowls can be found in this colour. This colour is very good for dining as it tends to make people feel comfortable and relaxed.

Paintings

A grid of bold artwork of a leaf or birds perched on top of a tree with green background is eye-catching. Even when the paintings have no green in them, just arrange them on a green painted wall to create that dramatic effect.

Sometimes adding character to a space can be as simple as updating a single piece of furniture. The upgrade will always depend on how deep your pocket can go. Do not shy away from using emerald green this season, when you are adding a little something to your décor.
