Green is one of those rare colours, all shades of which associate with summer, grass, freshness and ease. This colour looks splendid in all kinds of interiors, whether it’s a bedroom, a bathroom or an office. Green has so many tints, that the words “bright green” have absolutely different meanings and shades in each person’s minds.
How to Use Green in Interior Design
Nevertheless, green is such a unique colour, that if you accidentally choose the wrong shade, it is easy to fix with accessories of other tints or even different colours, since it combines excellently with all other colours.
This pleasant colour actually has a positive psychological influence on people. It relaxes and gives us the feeling of safeness and stability. It has an additional influence on people living in large cities: all the billboards and ads actually irritate the eye, even if we don’t notice it. The calm and smooth green soothes our eyes.
Green is the perfect choice for your kitchen, the perfect choice for joyful cooking. Bright green shades, such as the color of lime or green leaves, make the kitchen fun and modern and fill it with energy. If you add some yellow, you can the traditional neutral shade for a classical kitchen. To make your pastime in the kitchen even more pleasant, choose the tints of your favorite green products. Green has also a great effect on having a delightful meal, since this colour is favourable for slow digesting, which is the only healthy way to eat. For a bracing morning, choose lettuce green.
Choose the combination of green and blue for rooms of hyperactive children. This mix reduces the children’s activity. For a teenager’s room (especially if it’s a boy), you can choose dark lettuce green walls with black furniture. For a girl (nearly of any age), green with white will do good. It’s soft, fresh and adds some childish innocence to the room. This combination also looks just as good in any bedroom, and the most efficient effect it has is the feeling of neatness and pureness.
For living rooms (or other rooms where you usually welcome your guests), use green with brown. The unusual thing about this duo is the fact that you can combine absolutely any shade of green with any shade of brown and still get a great look. Green with a yellow tint in pair with light wooden furniture will give you a bohemian sort of interior, whilst lettuce and pistachio green with darker-coloured wood gives a more contemporary and bold effect.
You can safely use bold green shades with turquoise or aquamarine in bathrooms, being filled with energy from the bright colours in those lazy mornings.
The darker the green is the richer, luxurious and exotic your room will look. Combine it with white, gold or even red tones. However, the boldness of red may become irritating after a while, so it will be best to use only a couple of little accessories of that colour in the room. Be careful, furnishing such a dark-green room with dark wooden furniture will make the room dim and even a little depressing.
Easily experiment with this colour, since all shades will look good almost everywhere and even if your whole room will be green (including furniture and accessories) it won’t spoil the fresh and enlivened interior.
