#StPatrick’sDaySpecial: Go the malachite way

MAR 16, 2016 | By Tasneem Merchant
Let the colour of the natural stone takeover your home for a setting that will have your neighbours seeing green

It’s the colour of prosperity and growth, rolling lands and undulating fields, trees in all their glory and also envy. Be dazzled by malachite and get lost in its hypnotic waves and intricate lines that promise a setting unlike any other. What better day to celebrate the dynamic colour and pattern than St. Patrick’s Day? Bring out the shamrocks and drench your home in the colours of the saint.
To incorporate this international trend in your interiors, find wallpaper that mimics the pattern of the natural stone, a sofa upholstered in fabric etched with malachite motifs, decorative plates with swirls of green and even coffee tables adorned in the mesmerising lines.
