Interior Inspiration: Emerald City

It’s safe to say, green has never been top of my choice of colours for decorating. Yet the striking nature of most green interiors means that I have been mesmerised by some of the rooms I have collected here to inspire you today.

Historically, green conjures up period interiors, beautiful stately homes and cosy country log piles. If you’ve got enough light (or want to work with a lack of it instead of fight it,) green can look elegant and even magical.

A complete contrast however is the modern look. Emerald looks amazing in a black and white setting of mixed with patterns and prints blended in fabrics and accents like this pendant light shade.

I fell in love with this tropical room with a colonial feel, brass accents and that lush velvet sofa against a backdrop of greenery.

I think my favourite way to see emerald however is as a stand alone accent in a room. A piece of art maybe, luxurious fabrics or painted statement pieces of furniture.

I’m not sure I’ll be rushing to decorate in this shade… green isn’t a colour on my usual decorating palette, but the images are inspiring none the less. Have I inspired you today?

    • Me too! I have been dreaming of a blue velvet chesterfield like, forever, but the green would do me just as nicely I think!!

  1. Hmm I commented but it apparently disappeared though wordpress was saying that my comment was duplicate.
    I was saying that I love this inspiration. We have a lime-green couch, an apple green kitchen, teal- turquoise walls, and a lght minty-agua bedroom.
    Like you say the painted statement furniture can really bring a pop of color to a room, we have a yellow commode and I love just watching it, it makes me happy. (If the original comment is somewhere feel free to delete this one).

  2. I am loving the emerald green! Looks so sumptuous and stylish. Agree though that i am probably only brave enough to do this in accessories and furniture. Love the bed side tables! x

  3. These images are beautiful!

    I’ve been thinking about using some paler greens in our house. Eau de nil and mint are beautiful shades, although I agree the emerald is very striking.
