We are surrounded by colors, and with them being part of our everyday spaces and moods, we strive to find perfect harmony with the colors in our lives. As design trends come and go picking a color can sometimes feel a bit overwhelming. To help you ease into color, we’ll be taking more analytical approach to help you perfect any palette. This month, we're looking at the color green.
The color green has always been associated with growth, balance, and harmony, making it the perfect hue to surround ourselves with. Green is seen as a netural and it's calming effect works beautifully in virtually any space. When learning more about this color we dove into the exuberant celebration of the color green in Carlos Mata’s book “Forever Green” and found every reason to use green in our homes.
Green surrounds us in our everyday lives. As Carlos Mota said in Forever Green, “Green is like water; it is everywhere”. Green is a relaxing and soothing color, it’s the color of Mother Earth. Our Textile Director, Becky LaRoche exclaims “Our fearful and wondrous world of nature is perfectly suited to be the muse for our homes and how we live.” Green is the perfect hue for those seeking interiors that feel connected to the natural world. With being associated with nature, this shade can evoke feelings of tranquility, even studies have shown that being in a room with green reduces stress, and who wouldn't want that?
