Emerald is such a rich, deep shade, perfect to set trends in home decor. And, from what I can see, it transcends styles with ease.

Thinking of reupholstering that dingy ottoman. What a sexy new life it could have in emerald velvet.

I'm thinking of every old, mundane piece of furniture that could be transformed with a glaze of this green or painted in high gloss. Yum!

Drama and high style. What's not to love?
And, what an ooh-la-la addition to a wardrobe. I'm easily seduced by the European beauties shown above in emerald green. Images via Harpers Bazaar (left) and Vogue (right).

By far, my favorite emerald is found on the Lynn Ford vintage piece (above) that I purchased from the estate of his brother and famed architect O'Neil Ford. This hand carved decorative wood was crafted by Lynn Ford (1908-1978) in his Willow Way workshop where the celebrated artisan produced doors, screens, walls, light fixtures, containers, and other items in wood, copper, and brass.
I know it has looks that only a historian would love. But, one of these days, I'll have my talented husband tighten the joints and repurpose my favorite emerald gem into a headboard or maybe a cabinet door.
