Emerald Green for 2013

It's the hot color for 2013.  However, if you are a lover of neutral colors where do you add emerald green?

Start with an accent if you are feeling unsure.  Making a huge investment on the latest color trend works well with those who have deep pockets.  If this is a color you simply love, can't live without and you want to go big, you can drown your walls in the color or punch it in with fabric, furniture--even a door.

It is indeed a delicious color and it would be fun to add a lot or even just a little emerald green to your home decor!     

Found on Houzz.com.  Definitely not overdone, you can easily repaint one wall and change out or cover the chair.

Elle Decor.  Now that's what I call a cozy, yet dramatic statement!  The emerald green wall has it's own accent of a repeating gold medallion print.  And of course, look at those pillows.  Oh... that's right... I make decorative pillows.

Now, wasn't there a song way back when, "What's that peeking from behind the green door?"
