Calling All Green Thumbs
Are you a plant person? Or are you inspired by the colors of nature? Does green make you feel serene? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, Back to Nature might be the color for you. This color is inviting for living rooms and sunrooms and sparks inspiration for at-home offices and libraries. Here are a few ways you can add Back to Nature to your home design:
- Add playful pale green accents throughout your bedroom. A green vase, floral wall art, and green print drapes will add the pop of color subtly. You could even add a green throw blanket to your bedding collection.
- Incorporate the yellow-green shade with a variety of different textures in your living room. Paint a picture frame Back to Nature to spice up a plain white wall. Cover a wooden side table in the green color with a glossy finish. Toss a few fuzzy green throw pillows on an accent chair.
- Paint your entire sunroom! Grab your paintbrushes and turn your whole sunroom into an indoor plant paradise filled with bright colors and sunshine. The color is timeless for rooms with lots of greenery because Back to Nature complements darker foliage so well.
- Add bowls, a rug, and hand towels to your kitchen that match the khaki and green hue. You can even step it up a notch with playful green placemats, a green apron, or green cookware.
There are so many ways to incorporate the lively Back to Nature color into your home design. Don’t be afraid to be a little daring and let your creativity run wild. This versatile hue is great for any room in your home.
