So, at the risk of having your home look like the Wizard of Oz, emerald is a fantastic color to bring in to liven things up without interrupting a neutral palette.  I’m loving these pops of deep green emerald, and another great way to bring in some green:  plants.  Succulents, though kind of passe, are easy to care for and have a rich, velvety texture, and while you might be picking a lot of brown leaves off of ferns, they just look so cool!  So do some investigation on what types of plants will do well in your space, and brighten up, naturally.
