color combos: GREEN + BLACK (+gold!)

Green and black combinations seem to be popping up everywhere these days...
and although not always the case, gold is often part of this combination.

In many cases the greens are warmer, spring tones...

and others move towards medium, kelly-greens to deep, saturated emerald greens.

Bravo for the creative and gutsy combination above, the walls' middling-green/turquoise is almost overpowered by the warm, glossy greens on the lampshades and boxes.  The bold floor is a great match for these items as well, but nor does it lead the eye away from this dramatic black-green-white-gold combination!

Talk about an EXCITING, glossy space; this foyer is covered from head to toe in glossy, light-bouncing materials, from the silver-leaf ceiling to the high-gloss paint, to the polished marble floors.  The dog is a wonderful decorative accessory....but the green still takes the prize for most exciting and dramatic.

As much gold and black and sometimes busy pattern play their parts in this regal and timeless space, above, GREEN is still the key element.
