The, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute® and also author of the book, Color: Messages and Meanings is Leatrice Eiseman.  She says that green is:

the most abundant hue in nature, the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum…as it has throughout history, multifaceted emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate. Symbolically, emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world. This powerful and universally-appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors.’

As you can see here emerald green is not a subdued color, it is bright and vibrant but not brash.  The association with the much revered gemstone creates associations with luxury and good living.  However, this powerful hue does need to be used with some restraint.  For example, painting all the walls in a room is likely to be overpowering so select details and use emerald green as an accent color.  Also, the light cast in a green room can be rather unhealthy looking if you don’t combine some more neutral or warmer tones to counteract the effect of the cast color.

It is perfectly possible to revamp a neutral or white interior design scheme by introducing curtains, cushions and other accessories in this eye catching emerald green.  This way you can be in touch with current trends without having to totally redecorate.

Emerald green glass is particularly stunning as it shares the same transparent and reflective qualities as the precious gemstone.  Also, silk and satin fabrics have a natural sheen which is particularly complementary to emerald.  For a very dynamic combination this gorgeous green also shimmers with life when combined with shades of red.
