How to Bring the Color of the Year Home in Style by David Stark, David Stark Design and Production

  1. Fornasetti by Cole & Son Malachite wallpaper in green: This super chic paper would be perfect in a powder room in a modern apartment.

  2. Tableware from French ceramicist Sylvie Saint-Andre Perrin: I am hooked on this Parisian’s work. I just received a set of the emerald, brown and cream as a special gift and have been known to sit and stare at it – every piece is so beautiful. Bergdorf Goodman sells Sylvie’s work stateside.

  3. Color Reform area rugs from ABC Carpet: The over-dying process turns traditional woven area rugs into works of art. Perhaps if Mark Rothko had created rugs, they might look something like this?

  4. Sferra linen napkins: This Italian luxury label has 101 colors to pick from within their line of hemstitch napkins. The emerald is fabulous for an outdoor affair.

  5. Baccarat Vega small glass in green: I love adding one colored glass to each place setting to punctuate clear stemware. Baccarat makes some of the finest glassware in the world, and this shape works in both elegant and contemporary settings.
