Enrich your green home décor with emerald
While it is about all things green, the Emerald Isle trend moves away from the statement patterns of last year’s Tropical trend. This look captivates with inviting textures and subtle, tonal shades. It keeps those dark tropical greens but adds emerald greens and teals, and softer, paler hues such as mint or sage.
The beauty of this look is in the layering of the colours. A light green rug by a dark green armchair, or a teal cushion against an emerald green throw on the bed. Make sure you include the strongest, richest tones – darker shades of green don’t need to be confined to the realms of winter, they can be used throughout the year to create elegant, calming spaces.
Add glints of gold and antique brass
Copper, gold and antiqued brass home accessories are echoed in picture or mirror frames. Elegant Art deco inspired occasional furniture includes side and console tables with metal legs. Warm, gold coloured metallics shine against an emerald green interior, making this style feel indulgent and lavish.

Lamps, mirrors and marble surfaces
Add a feeling of intimacy with lamps rather than overhead lighting. Choose table lamps with decorative ceramic, marble or metal bases, and occasional tables with marble tops. Geometric shapes or motifs add to the Deco style – for example an octagonal mirror or a console table with crossed legs.

Finish with decorative accessories and lush greenery
Decorative Deco finishing touches, velvet or silk cushions and statement rugs suit the Emerald Isle bedroom and add to the feeling of luxe. Large houseplants oxygenate a room so they’re great for your health, but if you’re not green fingered, artificial plants look almost as good as the real thing and are perfect for green home décor.
