Hopping on the trend train? After the last few years of “Being green” becoming a household term, being green is not just for being Eco friendly anymore. The trend of being green is spilling over to our decor.
The new trend is decorating with green. Be it a modern “Kelly green” or a traditional “olive green,” it is everywhere. I have searched the web and local markets for these great ways to incorporate the color green in your home.
A great to begin is to add a green hued rug can set the tone for your new space, and it is usually less expensive than other sizable furnishings. If your space allows, painting the walls green is a bold way to introduce green. Using textiles to bring the green home is a lovely and non committal way to refresh your home seasonally, but for a more committed design, purchase or reupholster your existing furniture with dramatic or subtle green hues; for a bold modern touch use a geometric patterned fabric, and for a more transitional pace use a paisley or for the traditional home use a damask or striped pattern.There are many great green color combinations to use including Green/Gray, Green/White, Green/Aqua, and Green/Brown.
Another way to add a little green in your space is to simply add green accessories:
