Color Pop: Emerald Green



The best example of green. Look around you, it's everywhere.

As May ends and June is quickly approaching, I am fascinated by the emerald stone of May. I normally am not very attracted to greens unless it is this lovely rich shade. Known for growth and rejuvenation, this color is refreshingly appropriate for the brightness of spring. Embracing the emerald green color is like a fresh breath and a little jolt of energy. Cleopatra claimed this gem as her favorite and the Ancient Romans associated the jewel with Venus, goddess of love and fertility. Toady it is one of the most precious stones and one of the most vibrant pops of color in many aspects of design.



Kitchens designed in green remind me to eat healthy!



What a lovely rejuvenating welcome home.

I imagine this in the Emerald City, with doors opening out into a field of poppies (say it like the wicked witch)



Simple ribbons in shades of vibrant green brighten a white table.

Pantone has an array of colors and these stacking dolls are an adorable ombre example.



What a great color to stave off the rain. What if everyone carried a bright green umbrella?
