A bit like this blog eh! 🙂

You probably can’t believe then that we are almost half way through the year and I haven’t been bombarding you with posts about my namesake colour!

But I figure we’re almost at World Interiors Day, this is Emerald Interior Design, and we’re in the Emerald Isle, so I can’t hold off any longer.

So here is a just a little taste of the colour of elegance and beauty……..
