A fresh, vibrant green that adds the peaceful calm of nature into the home. It works beautifully in a dining room, powder room or as an accent color in the living room.

Moody, vibrant and seductive, this deep emerald green works in a variety of rooms, from a light-filled powder room to a spacious dining room. I love using Sparkling Emerald when lacquering furniture pieces to add a bold statement to any space.

Because green symbolizes nature, it is often thought of as a refreshing and restful color. Green can energize your home and pairs well with black and white accents and pops of bright pink and orange. It is a classic!

I usually tend to lean towards darker and more enveloping shades of green, particularly for bedrooms and studies … but when I want to have a play on space that invokes other emotions, like refreshment and restoration, like for a bathroom, I have found Jolly Green helps to achieve this.
