Commitment-phobes can give it a try with accessories like throw pillows, vases, or accent walls. This February, Pantone is launching its own line of bedding, pillows, bath towels, and accessories in emerald exclusively at JCPenney. Or get a splash of color with Urban Outfitters' emerald zigzag curtains ($34–$49).

Paint in the richly pigmented color can punch up a smaller room like an office, bathroom, or powder room without overwhelming the space. For a lacquered accent wall, Amin-Dufton recommends Benjamin Moore's Amazon Moss #2037-10 in a full gloss. Or paint just the ceiling, which makes crown molding stand out.

Amin-Dufton suggests accompanying emerald with gilver (an antiqued gold-and-silver blend). "Gold can read too collegiate and dated, but burnished metallic looks contemporary and modern," she says. "Camel color also works with bright green to temper its brilliance."
