Nature’s Neutral “Greenery”

Leave a comment

Between freezing temperatures, buckets full of rain, and howling winds, l think we all could use a little “greenery.”  Pantone’s color of the year has me panting for spring to arrive.  However, while I wait I am going to brighten up my home with pops of green.

Adding a little green decor will brighten and enliven any space.  It’s simple to add subtle touches of color with accessories such as lamps, pillows, small rugs, or vases.  It doesn’t take much color to bring a little life to a room.  You can add these items in small amounts to try out the color and see if it works for you.

If your timid about adding green into your home, try adding some natural greenery with flowers and house plants.  A little touch of greenery creates an inviting atmosphere to any space.  In addition,  adding greens from nature brings the outdoors in creating the feeling of warm, spring days even as the winds are howling outside.

 Green adds personality and peacefulness, while keeping the atmosphere natural, soothing, playful and fresh.  Green has a way of brightening a room that has too much brown making it a delightful complement to a dark leather sofa.

Green is often known as “Nature’s Neutral” bringing the serenity of nature into our homes and creating a sense of balance and harmony.  Green brings to mind relaxing days spent in lush tropical gardens.  Can you think of a better way to chase the winter blues than by adding a little inspiring green?

So Stay Calm and Go Green!
