    exotic! i think i may be able to use emerald as the accent colour in my bedroom…need to see first, its currently red and white (more country chic) with black accents….methinks emerald would be better though.

    Not feelin' it. Every 7 years or so, they try to make emerald happen, but it doesn't work. It tends to be too overpowering for decor, and in fashion, it requires a very specific skin tone to shine.

    Now that is a color I could dive into! It will be fun watching to see where all Emerald pops up. But for me, nothing will ever top the 2008 color of the year, Blue Iris. It was always my favorite color so I was delighted to know it's official name.

    It seems almost every year I turn my nose down at the Pantone color of the year selection.Then, when the color finally hits the product shelves here in Utah, I find that I'm in love with the color–especially in ribbons for weddings. One of my favorites that I really announced my dislike for, is the gray and yellow combination. I still love doing gray and yellow weddings.

    The first picture of the chandelier with a touch of green – it's truly relaxing in the eyes. Mostly because GREEN is the easiest color in the eyes, plus, chandeliers do illuminate the room, giving it a calming ambiance. This is why most of the spas I've visited in London have green-hinted chandeliers.

    I just love green walls. It matches any part of my house, plus, I love sticking decals onto it just to give some life. I only have a few furniture here at home, so I just design the walls to make it more lively. The chandelier is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing!
