La Dolce Vita’s Green Pick – Rug
Just like an outfit, Paloma Contreras says, "Every room needs at least one bold, statement-making piece.” Her go-to green pick for 2013 is a patterned rug that sets the tone of the space. Contreras likes The Rug Company’s Key Shadow area rug by Suzanne Sharp. “This rug is ideal for infusing a room with a classic pattern and a major dose of color in a graphic, modern way. The emerald color is at once fresh and completely timeless." For more information on the rug go to www.therugcompany.com, to visit her blog, visit www.ladolcevitablog.com .
MegBiram.com’s Green Pick – Wallpaper and Wall Art
To create a rich backdrop for a room, go with your favorite shade of emerald green and place it on walls. Whether in a rich wallpaper such as Kenneth James’ Pip by Eijffinger® from Brewster Home Fashions featuring emerald green, teal, pink and other bright colors or with the company’s low-commitment, stylish WallPops, the premier line of peel-and-stick wall art from Brewster Home Fashions. So easy to use and effective, Meg Biram of her popular self-titled lifestyle blog calls the wall art a “room makeover in a box.” Shine in 2013 with a fresh look with WallPops Lucky Clover Stripes on walls. Meg says, “Emerald green is a classic color and stripes never go out of style, this look is a refreshing update, especially in dreary winter months.” WallPops Stripes are approximately $14.99 and are available at select retailers and online at www.wallpops.com, where you can also view the rest of its expansive, chic wall art offering.

Design Darling’s Green Pick – Books
The luxe look of this tiara tone is maximized when paired with texture. Rich colors bring even more drama to a room when combined with lush fabrics, such as velvet, silk and leather. Try this in your own home with silk green throw pillows, a velvet chair or in smaller accessories such as Design Darling’s Mackenzie Horan’s very of-the-moment, unexpected room accessory. She says, "I love emerald for all kinds of accessories, but at the top of my list is Graphic Image’s dictionary in crocodile-embossed leather.” Horan suggests adding the book to a bookshelf or a coffee table as an easy way to stay on trend. Comparing Pantone’s 2012 color with the opulent dose of color that 2013’s adds to a room, she adds, “I'll take emerald over Tangerine Tango any day!" The dictionary is available here: http://bit.ly/cCoHSc, view her blog, here www.mackenziehoran.com.
Small Shop’s Green Pick – Malachite
"There is little more naturally beautiful than the emerald green of malachite,” says Erika Brechtel of Small Shop, a brand styling studio and blog. The emerald box dresses up any room like a gem from the living room, bathroom to kitchen, while also being functional. Brechtel continues, “Bring in the richness and texture of the mineral with a small malachite box. Real or faux, it's a great way to add a glamorous touch of this hot hue!" For maximum impact, try grouping variations of accessories in the same green tone like a parure, a set of various items of matching jewelry. Visit Brechtel’s blog, at www.smallshopstudio.com/blog
Young House Love’s Green Pick – Painted Furniture
Like red-painted nails adding an extra dose of chic to any outfit, every room needs a bold-colored piece. If one doesn’t come to mind, create a spotlight-worthy item and get on-trend for 2013 by giving a furnishing a fresh coat of paint. Young House Love blog’s Sherry Petersik of the popular DIY husband and wife duo, with her husband, John, says, “We love vibrant emerald green paint on an accent piece of furniture like a console in an entryway or a vanity in a bathroom.” Easily add intrigue to the piece by layering the green with an oil-based gray paint to create a marble effect or refresh hardware with bold accents. Petersik continues, “This update is a must, it’s a great way to wake up a room in a sophisticated, yet happy way."
Whether with one or a few of these suggestions, you’ll surely create a room that will be on-trend and that you’ll treasure all through the New Year.
