Color Crush: Decorating with Green

When it comes to colors, green is a crowd pleaser. From lime to emerald, Kelly, olive and celery, green offers something for everyone. It can be neutral … or not. It can make a statement or it can soothe the soul. It also feels rich (well, it is the color of money and envy.)

Sorry Kermit, but we think it’s easy being green! Find your favorite shade or mix and match a few. Here are five pieces that will turn your home into an inviting retreat.

Celery Green

This soft green chair will go with anything. Pair it with basic beige to add a layer of interest. Use it with black for a dramatic combination. Or mix it with colors such as coral, navy or red for a sophisticated, vibrant palette.

 

Lime Green

The light and bright shade of green will feel like a little bit of spring in your room. This accent chair will bring a bit of spring into your room with its vibrant lime green. Imagine how it will perk up a basic space.

Kelly Green

The luck of the Irish will be with you when you add a bit of Kelly Green to your room. This vibrant shade makes a statement, so use it sparingly, like with this accent chair. The pop of color is playful and fun.

Emerald Green

An emerald green chair brings a rich burst of color to your room and shakes things up. It’s a great choice if you prefer to keep your wall color neutral. It makes a statement without overpowering your room.

 

Olive Green

This deep shade of green is a rich neutral that adds depth to a room without being overpowering. It goes well with black, brown or khaki, and has the feel of causal elegance.
