Nate Berkus was ahead of the curve when he papered this powder bath in a green overall malachite-like pattern. It is stunning with brass accents and a dark brown wainscott. This really makes a statement. (As seen in Architectural Digest November 2012.)
The color of the year, according to pantone, is emerald green. Personally, I am not a great fan of green unless it has lots of gray in it making the tones drab. I have painted the bottom of my kitchen cabinets Farrow and Ball Mouse’s Back, a mysterious gray/green, and occasionally wear an olive green sweater. That is about as far as my green vocabulary goes.
