The green room: a bedroom for 2013


Emerald green is shorthand for luxury; an elegant shade that Pantone has crowned Colour of the Year for 2013, and one that will instantly update and transform your bedroom.



This beautiful jewel colour creates opulence in the room you need it most, so let your bedroom become a regal sanctuary by pairing this hue with the right features – we show you how:

How to do it
There are two ways to work this year’s colour in your home: the subtle way and the brave route. Take a look at both and just try to resist going that extra mile!

Set occasional flourishes of emerald green against fresh white walls for a minimalist, modern take on the trend. Use the jewel hue to dress a sleek, contemporary bed – a divan perhaps – and let the shade daub lamps, vases and cushions on chairs and window seats. A few glossy plants in deep green will perfectly compliment the look. Keep things looking fresh and airy with pale carpet and a sleek blind in white or cream.

A dark wood bed, such as one from the range available from Storage Beds Direct, will look captivating set against green walls. Emerald and black are a great colour combination, so don’t be scared to go for black bedding, adorned with a few scatter cushions referencing the shade.

If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, contrasting several different types of black and white monochrome patterns against a background of emerald walls and soft furnishing can deliver a look that won’t fail to command attention. Need proof? Click here.

Glasswear in emerald green is the ideal way to brighten up a natural-themed bedroom, as it is itself a colour from nature. Be inspired by the image here, which sets a beautiful vase and nautical glass ball against rustic wood photo frames.

Since the shade connotes opulence, why not fulfil your desire for luxury by teaming emerald walls with an impressive glass chandelier? The effect needn’t be stuffy and archaic – take a look at the modern, light-filled space here.
