After last weeks look at architectural screens, were making a quick about-face into spring with a look at the color of new growth, green. Green can be a great color in the home, especially when used in moderation with a solid background of neutral colors. The great thing about green is that the color range is so vast, from warmer tones of chartreuse and olive, to cooler ones of Kelly and bottle green, allowing for the use of green in a large number of color schemes.
Brighter greens are a great foil against black and white, with the green and white combo giving a lively, clean feel. Muddier greens look great with woods, browns and beiges, with chartreuse or olive and wood giving off a retro Modern look. You can pair greens with blues for a water-inspired look, or muted warm greens with tones of fuchsia and lilac for a very different but sophisticated look. Dont forget that tones of green can be added to your home with the use of plants as well, adding that touch of life and springtime in a quick and easy way.
