It’s a breeze decorating with natural green tones.
Green is a natural choice for home decorating. This color range from the world’s forests, meadows and gardens brings a feeling of the outdoors to the inside of your home.
For home decorating, you have so many choices in the green family, from rich and lush, to calm and serene, to bold and brilliant. Because green comes in so many shades, it’s a very flexible design color. Just think of all the beautiful natural names for green hues:
Naturally, you have lots of possibilities to add green to your décor, whether in small touches or major design elements:
Painted walls and paint stenciling
Upholstery and drapery fabric
Painted wood furniture and kitchen cabinets
Rugs and carpeting
Lamps and light fixtures
Accessories such as throw pillows, vases, flowers and table linens
Tile countertops and backsplashes
It’s usually best to stick with one or two shades of green, and use neutrals and other accents to finish your design plan. Colors that work well with green tones include:
White, gray, and neutral beiges and creams
Browns, camels and taupes
Pinks, reds and salmon
Small touches of blue, black, orange or yellow
