Seeing Green!

With St. Patrick’s Day coming up next week, I thought it would be appropriate to highlight rooms that are primarily green.

I have always been drawn to the color green–it reminds me of nature, and I find it soothing and pleasant. I read that green is the most restful color for the eye and can even improve your vision!

A green focus may be particularly timely this year, as the color institute Pantone has chosen a yellowish spring green called Greenery as the 2017 color of the year:

The Greenery color is a bit too vibrant for my taste, but in a small dose here or there it can be refreshing.

Here are some rooms and exteriors that use different shades of green in attractive ways:

The building pictured above isn’t painted green, but with all the lovely vines covering its walls, it is effectively green.

Do you have a green room in your house? If not, would you want one?

  1. I’ve never liked green, but always had it in small pastel amounts in my house. All of the sudden, I’m kind of obsessed with it and that Pantone color is right up my alley! It really is a happy color. Great post.
