Accessories are a simple and exciting way to change the look of a room for little cost.  Adding a few emerald pieces, such as these vases and bowls, to a room will brighten the space.  Pictured here next to a sink, pieces like this would also work well next to a tub, flanking the fireplace, or on a dresser.
