This months hot EMERALD interior colour trend allows you to bring the fresh feeling of the outdoors, indoors and will create a pop of luscious colour in even the plainest of homes.


Colour Palettes

Emerald green is a versatile colour choice that works equally well in dark and light interiors. Its vibrant nature will add an eye catching colour pop in a grey or monochrome interior or can be partnered with other bold and bright tones such as azure, fushia and yellow for a Moroccan style interior feel. This seasons key combination is a simple partnership of emerald and white that creates an elegant and uplifting interior feel that is perfect for a soft and summery ambiance. Bold floral print wallpapers work wonderfully with crisp white paint and flooring for a light and airy style that will open up even the most compact of interior spaces.




Textiles and cushions create a visually beautiful and practically cosy focal point against a statement bed or seating area. Emerald cushions are particularly elegant as they look great against dark and light backdrops. This months hottest trend is palm print and allows you to tackle two trends at the same time. This bold design will transform your home into a colourful, tropical retreat that will transport you into a beach side setting with a chic and relaxed interior ambiance. Choose a selection of patterned and plain green and white cushions for added detail and variation.




Coloured fabrics are a cheap and effective way of adding colour into your home interior. If bought in bulk you can change and update your home with minimal effort but maximum results. Bold emerald curtains are a great alternative to a feature wall and look great against a wide range of painted walls. You can carry on your chosen fabric print and colour through into your throws, bedding, cushions, and even your seating with some clever upholstery and furniture up-cycling. This scattering of colour will update and uplift an old or new interior design and will create a sumptuous space in which to unwind.




Accessories provide the finishes touch to a newly decorated interior setting but are also a great way of testing out a new colour scheme without changing your entire decor. Lamps, vases, bowls and ornaments can be scattered throughout your interior or placed in strategic areas to create a burst of colour and eye-catching style. Emerald green accessories look wonderful placed on white painted or oak furniture for a fresh and modern feel. but also work equally well with  black painted or traditional hardwood furniture for a more retro, Art Deco design and feel.





Emerald painted furniture looks wonderfully eye-catching in neutral painted rooms or with soft pebble tones such as pewter and silver. Bold painted items work well in minimal contemporary settings or why not opt for an emerald green ‘washed’ paint effect (left) that will provide a more subtle and elegant splash of colour. If you have chosen to concentrate your emerald tones on your walls and accessories then opt for classic oak furniture or bright and illuminating white painted furniture for a contrasting and complementary furniture choice that provides a light and summery interior style.
