Emerald Green

Taking centre stage as the luckiest colour of the Lunar Year, Emerald Green represents the wood element in feng shui. This lush and vibrant shade signifies growth, renewal, and balance. As the colour associated with nature’s abundance, it’s perfect for welcoming positive vibes during the Year of the Dragon. Bring Emerald Green into your home through:

  • Walls and accents:  Create a focal point and a sense of balance within your space, whether through accent walls or adding subtle touches of Emerald Green in your living room or bedroom.
