Emerald is a dazzling shade that’s traditionally associated with wealth and luxury. It’s quite a show-stopper, so pair with neutrals for an elegant dining room scheme or, if you’re feeling daring, make it pop against velvety blue and gold paint colours.

Which paints? Emerald Delight 1, Emerald Delight 2, Celestial Blue 3, Honey Drizzle
