An essential element of design is color theory. Color permeates every area of our waking existence from our homes to our workplaces. We also correlate color with different emotions and ascribe meaning to it.
When we feel like reconnecting with nature, we go spend time in a park and have a cozy picnic. Green then is the color of growth and healing, its presence speaks for itself in our lives.
As the world moves towards sustainable design as a means to go back to our roots and combat the climate crisis. We reach more towards green spaces and the color green takes center stage in our environments as the Architectural Digest ad illustrates. So, if you’re looking for ways to make emerald, jade, sage, olive, or mint green interior design part of your home, then this article is just the brief for you!
Plants are Your Friends
The simplest way to add a refreshing splash of green into your home is to adopt plant babies. It has been proven scientifically that open green spaces are shown to lift people’s moods and positively impact their overall health. People with indoor plants also develop a nourishing routine just like people with pets do. Everyone knows the feeling of sitting on freshly cut grass or a walk around a lush park; the beautiful hues of green in the grass blades and trees naturally lift spirits.
Sure they will require some effort and time but they also benefit your home environment by making it feel open and pleasing to the eye. In short, adding plant babies is the easiest way to incorporate a green interior in your space.
Put a New Spin on Old Chairs
A recent trend within sustainable living is upcycling furniture using chalk paint. We all know the feeling of sitting on the slightly rustic but always homey wooden dining chair around a round dining table. Well, now people are taking the same vintage items and repainting them according to their taste using chalk paint. This easy-to-use paint can be found in any shade of green and can be easily used on a wooden surface.
As you can see in the picture, Olive and Love has kept the classic wooden table but has also upcycled the chair in various shades of green which has taken the whole look to a new level. Convinced yet? This fun project is an interesting way to spice up your living room look and also a way to adopt green color interior decor.
