The Journey of Colors: Greens

Go Green: Ways to Use Nature’s Color in Your Home

Green is having a major moment in home decor. The color instantly brings the freshness and tranquillity of the outdoors inside. But incorporating green can be tricky – go too bold with it and your home may feel more like a jungle than a sanctuary. Use these clever ways to add just the right amount of green for a harmonious and renewing home.

Greenery Accents

For an easy dose of green, add potted plants, wreaths, and floral arrangements. Place a fiddle leaf fig in the corner, hang eucalyptus wreaths above doorways, or even display a mini green mural on your side table.

Sage and Olive Hues

Paint a single accent wall in a muted natural green like sage or olive. This provides a subtle, refreshing color without overpowering. Use olive green in an office for an uplifting workspace.

Earthy Textiles

Choose fabrics such as pillows, throws, and curtains in organic green hues and botanical motifs. Layer in jute rugs with woody textures. The colors evoke nature without going over the top.

Unique Wallpaper

Wallpaper is back in style! Choose a bold graphic or floral print in green and pair with neutral furniture and accessories so the color pops.
