Whether for a stoplight or spring, green is the color of no longer waiting. Green means go. It means life, re-growth, and hope. And it also means a radiant home when applied expertly while decorating.
Decorating with the color green can mean so many things. It can literally mean bringing the outdoors in— with sprigs of mint and other herbs placed in mason jars, as well as delicate maidenhair ferns and all other kinds of foliage spotted around the room— reminding those who step in the house that nature has not stopped at the door. It can mean using lime green accents as a light-hearted addition to other tropical colors, like tangerine and passion-fruit pink, to create a happy-go-lucky, youthful energy for darker, more closed-up rooms that could use a bit of island fever. It could also mean using the soothingly elegant shade of olive green in spaces—especially paired with cream, rich yellows, or black—where you want to set an understated, urban mood. The Bloom Modern Eco Table Runner, Placemats, and Napkins in Olive and Cream set the perfect bar for this example.
As green is the color most easily detected by the human eye, the already-effervescent shades of teal and lime green will not go unnoticed by anyone at your dinner party when using the School of Fish Napkins in Teal and Lime Sizzle. And since green is a naturally soothing, restful color, the Bloom Eco Art Throw Pillow in Olive on Cream is a calming, comfortable and versatile accent for any couch, bed or chair.
Can’t get enough of this reminder of spring? Choose a more saturated hue of green, such as emerald or kelly, and pair it with black and white for an energetic, vivid elegance. Muted, milky greens are considered neutrals, and pair well with other neutrals such as brown, beige, or cream. And moss green is the perfect backdrop for showcasing antiques and art pieces.
Whether you’re using mint green to create a spa-like atmosphere or a bold yellow-green chartreuse to enliven a room, the color green will remain true to its nature: it will bring your room to life.
