Emerald Green with Envy

I've decided to focus my first blog post of the month on color. I know it's Fall and everyone is probably into the red, orange and yellow hues that naturally come to mind this season, however, I've been feeling emerald green for some time now and am dying to use it somewhere, most likely when I finally recover my vintage Paul McCobb dining chairs.  Here are some green rooms that I think are super cool.

I love this mid-century inspired sofa in an emerald green velvet.  The artwork, plant and walnut side table make this room so moody to me (in a good way!) Image via Article.

How cool and unexpected is the color on this kitchen island? I would love to cook in such a bright, fun space! Image via The Kitchn

This accent wall is in between an emerald and hunter green, but I love how bold it looks with the citron colored sofa and wooden console table.  Image via Bolig Magazine.

This is a whole lot of room (and maybe a tad too over the top for me), however, I really like the emerald green and leopard print combo. Image via Brit & Co.
