Loving a little more EMERALD

I was in Dallas this weekend for my mother's 85th birthday and the Dallas Home and Gift market. (Happy Birthday, Mother! :) My sister and I took my mother to the Stoneleigh Hotel for her birthday lunch, a real Dallas landmark, renovated just two years ago. The lobby has lovely emerald green accents in the draperies and pillows.

This is not your Mother's "jewel" tone color scheme, mind you. The modern emerald green is a graphic punch of color in a neutral environment....white, gray, black.

When I got home, I'd just received my Traditional Home magazine in the mail and there was a beautiful white and black kitchen with these bright emerald green pendants.

Then I checked my Facebook page and had seen this gorgeous fabric on Ceylon et Cie's post. Michelle Nussbaumer commented that she recently had dinner with Elle Decor's editor-in-chief, Michael Boodro, in Paris who said that emerald was a big color trend in Paris right now.

Hopefully we'll have more beautiful emerald fabrics and wallpapers to choose from in the near future!
