Pops of Emerald

by: Shelby Davidson

Emerald green is here, and if we’re lucky, it’s here to stay. The bold, but poised color has quickly made its way onto this year’s hot color’s list, especially when it comes to interiors, more specifically, the interiors of Birmingham’s elite. Likely, you’re intrigued by its mysterious demeanor, but maybe you’re intimidated by its potential? A color so bold can be quite difficult to maneuver, but don’t fret. My advice? Opt for small, yet daring pops to pepper throughout your home, without overdoing it. If you’re feeling more adventurous, the sky’s the limit!

Tea Cups Charish $75

These dainty tea cups add unique color to any kitchen. Serve your guests an afternoon tea, or opt for the less traditional use, and plant succulents to sprinkle throughout your space.

Wallpaper Target $29.99

Wallpaper is back! My favorite looks typically involve an accent wall, covered with a statement wallpaper. It adds depth, color, and a little bit of attitude, for just a small price. This Opal House one will add a moody flare to any space.

Price dependent on size.
Fiddle Leaf’s are all the rage right now. Add natural pops of green throughout your space with these trees. Or, if you’re lacking a green thumb like me, a faux tree has its perks – no watering, no chance of killing it, comes fully grown – see what I mean?

Lamps Target $121

Add color and charm to your side tables with these emerald green faux snakeskin table lamps. Pair them in the same room or spread them out for pops of color in multiple rooms or living areas.

Sofa AllModern $679

To me, there’s nothing more elegant than a pop of color from a velvet sofa. It sets a regal, refined tone for your space. If you’re ready to fully embrace the emerald look, opt for a chic sofa like this one, it’ll speak for itself.

Tray Ethan Allen $299

Spice up a neutral coffee table or ottoman with a decorative tray, perfect for placing flowers, coasters, magazines and more. If you’re a bit skeptical of the emerald trend, try a small pop of color to test out the waters a bit.
