A fresh look ...

As I mentioned the other day the pantone colour of the year is emerald green and as with any colour there are always a ton of varying shades. You may not like to use such a strong colour as emerald in decor but for a clean fresh start other shades of green work particularly well in the home. Having just done a major clear up after the festive season I am all for a fresh start and new beginnings:)

Hope you get some nice inspiration here and are all settling back
 into a normal routine after the holidays :)
