Royal, midnight and navy blues have been wildly popular in the past several years but this year stepping away from those dreamy hues and embracing more exotic shades of green.

Spaded spruce was named one of Patone’s 2017 fall colors and oh is it so dreamy and lush.  It is a beautiful cross between teal and jade and perfect for those who aren’t ready to give up their blue hues.

Greenery was named Pantones color of the year, and one look at it will take you back to going on your first date in your dads 70s green Volkswagon van or have you dreaming of pea soup. I can’t seem to jump on that soul train, but I am stepping away from my signature spectrum of blues.  Dark green is the perfect way to meet in the middle.  If your ready to step up your color game but having a hard time imaging how to incorporate dark green here’s some inspiration.

Check out contemporary ways you can incorporate dark green without turning your home into the emerald city.

These dark green kitchen cabinets are everything! This green island is having a hard time being the center of attention with the architectural design of the built in wine storage and the patterned floor.  This kitchen had a modern, cottage and rustic feel all in one.

This shade of green is absolute perfection. This front door makes a statement to any whoever may passerby, and detail and grandness of the door make it a perfect candidate for the exotic green hue. The contrast of the natural color of the shingles goes with this front door like peanut butter and jelly.


This gutsy move was flawlessly executed. As if incorporating shades of green wasn’t hard enough Sheldon Harte, an interior designer in Laguna Beach, created a serene patio that flows into the natural background of the outdoors.

No need to click your heels you’re already home, but no doubt the emerald city envies your living room. This watercolor wall paper is a trendy way to create an accent wall without having to commit to a solid color.


Still having trouble letting go of the comfort of a dark blue hue, add a green velvet couch with a blue accent wall. Bravo Studio Mcgee, your designs are beautiful as always.


This hue has the perfect amount of blue to put it on the subtle calm spectrum of green but paired with the leather headboard is what had me going crazy over this shade.
