I thought a little of a winter Emerald Green – the 2013 Color of the Year – was a great way to kick off January…I loved this un-preppy take on emerald green and leopard. Black hardwood floors are both modern and provide a great dramatic backdrop for almost any color palette. Like a green wool coat, a green sofa would definitely be a big investment, but if you’re in love with the color, why not? Green can go many different directions, so you could change up the vibe of the space as your tastes change. The casual gray flannel ottoman is a good counterpoint to the fancier leather chair, like a good pair of Chuck Taylors.
