Malachite is a trend that I've been seeing everywhere in the home space. It's a beautiful natural mineral that has this gorgeous green and jade and black with this really pretty random pattern, which translates so nicely to home products. Pantone's color of the year is emerald green, so malachite is a natural fit to be on trend. The natural powder of Malachite is super versatile. You know, put a little bit goes a long way. I would start off by using the malachite powder and go painting a small box and then if you're really loving it, try it on curtains or maybe even upholster a Pullman chair with it. I'm almost seeing malachite as a neutral. Think of like grass outside, it goes with everything. So don't be limited by a color palette that you think you can use it with. It really won't work with anything. So, if you wanna be on trend, but don't wanna upholster your sofa, try buying just a yarn and turning it into a pillow and seeing where it goes from there.
