Here's a color combo we can't get enough of lately: emerald green and black. Like any good couple, they're just a little bit better together: the green livens up the black, and the black sets off the jewel tones in the emerald and helps it really shine. Here are ten of our favorite examples.

Above: if you're coveting the emerald green bathtub and black ceiling in this bathroom, we wouldn't blame you one bit. Spotted on My Scandinavian Home.
