Decorating with Color: Spring Greens

Thursday, May 17th, 2018

With all the lush trees, flowers and plant life surrounding us during this time of year, today we’re featuring the color that encapsulates the charm of spring: green. Below we’ve shared a few ways to use the different shades of green in your home.

Cabinets

In the kitchen or in the bathroom, green is a great complement to just about every design style: farmhouse, modern, mid-century and more. Gold, muted yellow, wood materials all work with green, so you are sure to find accents and additional decor to coordinate with whatever shade of green you select.

Walls

Paint is a great way to freshen up any living space, so if you’re ready to take the plunge, paint an entire room in your favorite green hue. For added texture, you could also try green beadboard or shiplap, or find a green patterned wall paper to give your home a spring infusion.

Accents

Of course, sprinkling green around your home can also bring a cheerful look to each room. Some ideas include painting stairs, incorporating a green furniture piece or painting your doors and windows the same shade of green. Green home accents like pillows, curtains, collectibles and more will also make a spring-y impression.

Folk Art Dog and Cat Pillows Why We Love Green

Green is a very popular color for decorating. Whether it is a painted green room or with green accents throughout your entire home, green is an extremely versatile color. Green symbolizes growth and rebirth within nature, particularly highlighted during the spring season.

This refreshing feeling can be carried over to the decor in your home with the use of green. Whether you go for bright greens, bold greens, or muted tones as shown in the sage hues in the image to the left, green can be used in any room in many ways. Add green to your curtains for a calming window treatment or in your bedroom for a nature inspired look. Let us take a moment to explore how Sturbridge Yankee showcases the color green.

Green is said to be one of the easiest colors on the eyes. It’s unique to any other color because our eyes actually use green to recognize and actually interpret the other colors in the spectrum. We know that green is calming and this is why each performance hall and theater has a “green room” to relax and calm performer’s nerves. Green Puzzle Piece Wall Frame interlocks with other puzzle piece frames for versatility. Orleans Curtain Fan Insert in sage is a wonderful option for a calming window treatment.
