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.

 A lot of people are inspired by nature when it comes to home decoration. It is a good idea to use patterns of nature when decorating. While you can use white in combination with green, combining the color with cream offers a softer look and a more welcoming feel.

Colorful accessories

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.
