Green is an ideal color if you want to start experimenting with colors in your own home. Green surrounds us and you should easily get used to the color.
Green is the color of nature and health. It represents growth, money, fertility and safety. Green is a relaxing color which is pleasant to the eye and is said to have healing powers. It is the color of balance and harmony.
With all this, could anything go wrong? Well, it probably could. J
Like all colors, green comes in countless tones. The good thing is that tones of green go very well with each other and it is recommended to combine them in interiors. But first and foremost, you definitely need to be “green” or, in simpler terms, you have to have at least a bit of a feel for the color green. Luckily, I’m green from head to toe. 🙂
Also, green is the only color which is, almost yearly, in one of its forms or tones, declared the trending color of the year. Considering the truly unbelievable spectrum of colors which surrounds us, the message is clear; if you bet on green, you will win!
Aside from the Pantone coral quartz color (color code 16-1546), which marked the beginning of 2019, Pantone Quetzal Green (color code 18-5025) – a deep elegant blue-green tone – was also included in the official Pantone Fashion Trend report for 2019.
Being frightened of darker shades is completely unjustified. As a rule, those are actually more elegant, and besides, dark walls make brighter furniture stand out more.
Since darker shades reflect much less light, tall spaces will appear smaller and walls will visually appear closer to each other. The same goes for elongated spaces which will appear more regular when painted in a darker hue.
This shade of green loves the gold color and all tones of pink, from pale pink tones to aggressive brick-red and purple! My absolute favorite!
A relaxing and fresh tone of green was trendy in 2018. This tone is ideal if you want to play it safe, you like gentle and pastel colors, you’re decorating the kid’s rooms and you’re not ready for any radical changes (at least not in the interior).
Careful with this tone around walls and furniture. 2017 might forgive you, but 2019 surely won’t! 😉
But, when we’re talking about details – dishes, candles, vases, pillows, frames and other paraphernalia – it is a great choice even in 2019!
2016. was marked by green – the green color, I’d say green with a bit less blue color and a little more olive color.
Trends are good and useful, not to be followed blindly, but to help us if we’re looking for inspiration or if we simply want something new and different.
I believe that it is NOT a coincidence that the ‘green color trend’ stays with us year in and year out. We live in a time when we all need a bit of safety, balance and harmony! J
So, if you already have a couple of green pillows on your couch or a lot of greenery in your room, it’s time to start thinking more offensively.
Are you ready to dive in deeper into green or are you going to give up?
