It looks like we have a new trend for this summer: green all over the place. Although a lot of people couldn’t imagine this color in their home, it is vivid and playful and it could really bring your home to new life. Nonetheless it is important to incorporate the color in the right way.
Mixing the shades
If people use green in a decorating scheme, they can achieve a calming effect which is easy on the eye. This is why this color is just perfect for the bedroom and the living room. The good news is that you can combine different shades of green without it being too much; just think about all the shades nature comes with.
While you can use green with green, for a more dramatic and moody effect, think about combining the color with blue. In the majority of the cases it is best not to mix green with blue, but you could achieve amazing effects when using colors of the same tone. Consider mixing blue mid-tones and chalky emerald.
Olive is one of the most popular hues of green. In order to keep the room lively and vibrant make sure that you have blocks of white, made of a white window or a white cupboard. The people who would like to have an interesting room should think about adding a splash of color through an item in a vibrant hue, such as deep purple.
You don’t need to have objects in all kinds of colors to add interest to a room. You just need one piece in an interesting color. For instance you could have a green sofa. In this case the depth of the shade and the solidity of the design will turn the sofa into the focal point of the room.
You can use green as a background color in the form of fabric canvas. If you add interest to a room in this way, the best strategy is to keep the rest of the design simple and avoid using elaborate decoration. However, you could just have some simple patterns.
