Add Elegance to Your Home with the Richness of Emerald Green

This brilliant shade has an intriguing secret history.

When a new green pigment was developed in the early 19th century, it seemed like a marvellous discovery. Not only was it bright and intensely vibrant, but it was also cheap to produce. Artists loved Emerald Green, as did wallpaper manufacturers, who used it for all kinds of delightful designs. But it was too good to be true. The pigment had a tendency to release arsenic fumes – and let’s just say the results were often fatal. It’s also believed that Napoleon’s death in exile on St Helena was hastened this way. By the early 1900s, Emerald Green had fallen from grace due to its deadly reputation.

Fortunately, synthetic pigments quickly replaced Emerald green, producing an equally vibrant hue but with none of the unwanted side effects. So today, you can use this jewel-like colour for a gorgeous (and safe!) effect, perhaps in a living room, bedroom or bathroom, where its rich vibrancy will add a sense of luxury and elegance.


Living Room Allure with Emerald Green

Emerald green in the living room offers a touch of regal beauty. You can create an accent wall with this vibrant colour, making the room instantly feel lively and cosy. Alternatively, consider having emerald green sofas or armchairs, offset by neutral walls.

Incorporate gold-framed mirrors or artwork, as gold pairs exquisitely with emerald green, giving your living space a timeless and elegant vibe. For a subtle touch, go for emerald green throw pillows, curtains, or area rugs.

Dreamy Jewel Green Bedroom

For a bedroom that serves as a serene retreat, jewel green paint is the way to go. Paint the wall behind your bed in jewel green, creating a stunning focal point. You can also opt for jewel green bedding or a chic, upholstered headboard in this hue. Pair it with crisp white linens for a refreshing contrast.

For a dose of glamour, add bedside lamps with gold bases, or hang gold-framed pictures or wall decor. Alternatively, consider jewel-green nightstands or a cosy reading chair in this rich colour.

Emerald Oasis Bathroom

Transform your bathroom into a luxurious oasis with emerald green. You might paint the bathroom vanity in this lush colour, complemented by gold hardware. For an extra dose of style, use emerald green tiles for your shower area or as a striking backsplash.

If painting or tiling isn’t feasible, invest in emerald green bath towels, a shower curtain, or a bath mat. Gold or brass fixtures, like faucets and lighting, will enhance the spa-like atmosphere. For the final touch, place a potted plant or two to bring in a natural element, making your bathroom a truly relaxing space to unwind.


Emerald green colour can make any room feel calm and luxurious at the same time. If you want to change up the look in your home, consider using this beautiful green. You’ll be bringing a bit of history and a lot of style into your space.
