GREEN ENVY

I have always loved emerald green.   With the design world's lean back to warm metals like brass, gold and copper, I went  into my old photo clippings to find some examples and decided that no matter when emerald is used with warm metals it WORKS!!

Here are some examples:

Living room is upholstered in emerald green velvet.  So sumptuous!

Grand living room emerald green sofa, black/white marble floor, chinoiserie panel

Miles Redd's Chinoiserie Pagoda bedroom 
 There are some amazing examples of emerald green in nature like Peacocks and Malachite.





Here are some beautiful replica fabrics that are available:
