How to Decorate with Green

Are you seeing green today? St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday synonymous with luck, gold, of course, lots of green. With sea and earth tones designated as two of the year 2020’s most popular hues, shades of green are also taking focus in interior design. We’re here to break down how to extend this color trend beyond today’s festivities and into your space.

Accent Walls

According to color theory, green represents balance and harmony. What better area to bring a relaxing vibe into than a bathroom? An emerald subway tile makes for a strong accent wall, but when offset with neutral floors and fixtures, the room still feels calm.

If you’re not ready to commit to a green-tiled accent wall, try painting your walls. Behr has declared sage green as the paint hue to focus on this year.

Kitchen Cabinets

Use decorative pieces like pillows, vases, books, and picture frames to tastefully incorporate livelier colors, like lime green, without fully committing. The accessories in this industrial living room are just enough to catch your eye without being an eye-sore.

Plants are a fresh way to add character, texture, and a hint of green. If you don’t want the maintenance of a real indoor plant, artificial can still be fashionable. A faux floor plant and vase of tulips help tie together this simple, yet sophisticated bathroom.
