Green With Envy

This entry was posted on 10th January 2011

The colour green is beautifully gorgeous; it can be fresh, warm, bright, classic, and whacky, you name it and green can be it. Where a dark tone of green can add drama and class as well as depth and richness to your home decor a pale tone can add coolness. Then there is the wacky lime green, only for the daring, it can add an fresh explosion of colour and fun to a room. You can use greens in a daring fashion, or equally in a demure and classy style. The choice is entirely yours. However, the key is to use a similar palette of greens as to avoid clashes. For example; you can take your inspiration from apples, grapes and leafs, but you need to mix this inspiration with similar shades and tones. In other words choose shades that have the same degree of coolness or warmth in them. To add warmth to a room why not go for a dark and deep forest green carpet in the centre of your sitting room accompanied by a similar shade of green on your upholstery. Alternatively to add coolness why not chose a light green vertical blind or a brushed metallic green venetian blind. Or why not add something different all together with zesty green roller blind. If you’re not keen on the colour green  appearing on your floor or windows, however, then why not add slight glimpses of the colour to your home via your accessories. Green cushions and throws can add either warmth or fun to your living room or bedroom depending on what tone you choose. Alternatively you could use green accessories such as vases and picture frames, which will add subtle yet fun touches. So go on, why not make your friends green with envy!
