HOW TO COLOR GREEN: 16 INSPIRING IDEAS

Green, I love the color. It is the color of balance and harmony. It is the color of growth, the color of spring, of renewal and rebirth. It is the color that I readily associate with the Month of March. It renews and restores depleted energy. Green promotes a love of nature, a love of family, friends, pets and the home. It is the color of the garden lover, the home lover, and the good host……honestly, no wonder I love this color. For heaven’s sake, why wouldn’t you? Anywhoooo…….it is a fabulous “neutral” to use in your interiors, as you will see. While Pantone declared it their color pick for the year 2013, it is certainly not a passé color, by any means. I hope you enjoy these Visions to Inspire.

LIVING SPACES

What a statement this sofa makes in all of its Emerald glory. Clearly this space is a family space and I love how the bookshelf has been styled. Keeping each shelf organized by color, makes for such a pleasing and cohesive way of organizing, it’s like moving around the color wheel.

In this space, shades of blue seem to be the predominate color, and, then, it’s punctuated with a pop of green, in something as simple as a pouf.

KITCHEN AND DINING SPACES

Doesn’t this space just make you happy? And, that island, in glorious Emerald, it’s the pop of color that just says WOW. What fun!

Green, in all of its varying shades, from the painted diamond shapes on the hardwood floor, to the table and hutch, to the stoneware.

In a word, STUNNING.

Rustic meets Contemporary. Clearly, those Emerald chairs make quite the statement…..no mistaking who the Host and Hostess are.
