Trend Alert {Get Cozy With Emerald}


Are you looking for a way to add a little Emerald Green to your life? Since Pantone announced it as the Color of the Year for 2013, I have been looking to do just that. But, I have to admit that I have some serious ‘commitment issues’ when it comes to new design trends. Like many of you, I’m dealing with a pretty tight, sometimes non-existant, design budget. The solution? Throw pillows! They’re relatively inexpensive and easy to change out when you’re ready to try something new. Give this great collection a try. I just love the geometric patterns, so fun! Oh, and I just had to include this awesome scarf. Not only would it make a great wardrobe accent but wouldn’t it look great draped over a chair? Just beautiful.

Trend Alert {Emerald Art}

I absolutely love Pantone’s color of the year for 2013. Emerald Green! It’s such a rich, classy color that reminds me of sophisticated interiors of times gone by. But, how do you take this classic color and translate it into something fresh and contemporary? That question had me stumped for a while. So, I decided to scour my art sources and put together a collection of emerald colored prints with a modern edge.

I couldn’t help but include a vintage piece from the Art Deco era also. I mean, the Art Deco style is just too cool to forget.
