Top o’ the morning to you! These St. Patrick’s Day decor favorites in gorgeous shades of Erin go Bragh green fill the eye with the color of St. Patrick’s Day.
Inspiration is everywhere!
This brilliant blue-green color was extremely popular in the mid-1800s.
Because it was cheap to manufacture, it was not only used as an artist paint, but as a household paint and was widely used for patterned wallpaper.
Unfortunately, the paint was made with poisonous arsenic.
This made damp rooms, where the arsenic would be turned into a gas by the mod living in the wallpaper paste, a death trap.
Napoleon’s death in exile on St. Helena was possibly hastened by his exposure to the Emerald green wallpaper in his favorite room.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
