Green is currently a very popular decorating color. Whether it’s a painted green room or green accents throughout your entire home, green is an extremely versatile color as you will see below. Green is a color that comes to mind when “thinking spring” because when plants, flowers and trees begin or continue to grow, spring is a time for that rebirth and rejuvenation to occur. This refreshing feeling can be carried over to the decor in your home with the use of green.
With the beginning of spring just around the corner, having some green accents within your home décor will instill a feeling nature and the outdoors for months to come. Awaken any room with our Potted Rosemary Candle, seen here to the left. Made in the USA, a design of pretty green topiaries is featured on the jar. Rosemary is an aromatic herb that has been used for centuries in teas, cooking, and potpourri; today it is one of the most popular herbal scents for candles.
Green is said to be one of the easiest colors on the eyes; unique to any other color because our eyes actually rest upon or recognize green to actually interpret the other colors. Therefore green can also improve your vision! We know that green is calming and that is why purposely, before people are brought onto a live television set, they are often put in a green room to relax and calm their nerves.
At Sturbridge Yankee Workshop we have a lot to offer when it comes to green color options throughout our lighting, home accents, furniture and rugs categories. But in honor of spring, add some green decorative accents to the area outside your home as well. Those of you with indoor/outdoor living spaces like sun rooms, patios, decks or garden areas, will likely be spending a lot of time there this upcoming season as the warmer weather arrives. Our Indoor/Outdoor Pillows are the perfect solution, as seen here to the left in one color option fitting for our green theme: Green Lattice. These pillows are equally suited for your living room sofa or propped on a patio bench for added style and comfort outside. Made of 100% polyester, the fabric is durable and manufactured with a tough weather-resistant material with the look and feel of cotton. Another color choice you might enjoy for a green pillow accent is the Oatmeal Stripe option of this pillow, featuring a green and creamy oatmeal stripe pattern, with the subtle incorporation of a pale pink; perfect for spring decorating!
The many shades and hues of green are what has made this color a widespread, gender neutral color. The lighter and softer greens are correlated with nature and spring as seen above, while the darker and deeper greens are understood more conservatively with a symbolism of wealth. Money is referred to simply as “green” many times and perhaps painting a room or your entire house in this color will bring a serious of good fortune and luck. Consider decorating with green this spring and you’ll be pleased with all the benefits it can offer your both your home decor and your life.
