Design Forecast: Going Green

Have you heard the news? It’s all the rage ... Emerald Green is THE color of the year for 2013 as determined by the experts at Pantone. We have to admit to being a bit sad to see Tangerine Tango left behind as it is one of our Designer Bath favorites. Even so, we are never one to shy away from finding ways to incorporate modern design trends into classically inspired baths. While we don’t offer the emerald green fixtures of yesteryear in our showroom today, may we present some alternative suggestions ...

The brilliance of emerald green is easily replicated with both glass and stone. While a set of vintage knobs in this highly-saturated color may be enough for one person, another might appreciate an accent wall set entirely with verdant green mosaic tiles, or a striking countertop fabricated from a slab of natural malachite.

Accessorizing with pops of green will effortlessly add some emerald sparkle to a bath. If full on emerald is too strong for your taste, feel free to interpret this new trend by choosing a similar shade on the fan deck.

Add visual depth to the space by combining patterns and textures that share a common green thread. To see how one local designer created an elegant green guest bath, visit our recent post on the Junior League of Boston Show House.

Outside our showroom, we have discovered that emerald green and tangerine tango can co-exist quite nicely. Do stop by and see for yourself.
