Emerald City

Emerald City

1920-1940
Art Deco/Art Moderne

Based on a 1939 paint, deep spinachy-green colors, mainly intended for exterior use (a sash, door, or shutter color for example), also showed up in some of the "new" rooms of the 1930s and 40s. These dens, sunrooms or playrooms, and informal leisure spaces in basements featured casually furnished seating areas with a durable painted or linoleum floor in a neutral dark color. The classic 1939 film The Wizard of Oz is based on the 1900 children's novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. En route to the Emerald City, Dorothy and her dog Toto meet an interesting cast of characters where they are reminded that "there's no place like home."
