"Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises." — Pedro Calderon De La Barca
It may not be easy being green, as Kermit the Frog says, but it can be a restful color. We’re talking about greens like sage, ivy, forest … that have a soothing, tranquil, even refreshing feeling. These shades of green can be a neutral, too, that works with a range of other colors.
Throughout history, green has been described as the great harmonizer. Green is also the color of nature, which means the right shades can work surprisingly well throughout your home. Soft sage greens, for example, create a spa feeling in the bathroom. Earthy greens are relaxing for bedrooms, said to promote a good night’s sleep. In the living room, green can make a handsome accent wall, or introduce it through fabrics, pillows and accessories.
There’s paint, of course, but don’t overlook the impact green can make in dynamic new wallcoverings.
