The colour green will bring harmony and peace to your home

27. 08. 2018

Colours in the interior possess the ability to make the room seem optically bigger, smaller, brighter or they can even reduce the light or make it more peaceful.  And it’s the colour green which is able to evoke peaceful feelings. It’s often associated with nature; it’s the colour symbolizing harmony and hope. A sight of the colour green can boost energy and support concentration.

Most people don’t consider the colour green to be irritating; even those who avoid using distinctive colours, such as red.

However, do not combine green and red. This combination gives off chaotic vibes.

Here are rules for using the colour green in the interior:

  • Choose it as a supplementary colour. 

            Green parts of a furniture piece is a better choice than one-coloured, green sofa or kitchen cabinets. If you use it as a supplementary colour, it won’t lose its originality. That’s why it’s better to get a sofa of a more neutral colour and combine it with green pillows, carpet, upholstery, or accessories – such as plant pots, vases or wall art.

  • Green combined with yellow: Absolutely yes 

            Green goes with yellow perfectly, and with orange as well. This combination provides the calming and harmonious effect. But it would be better to avoid combining it with red, because it might be a bit over the top.

  • Shades of green – not all of them are suitable 

            There’s a wide range of the shades of green. For an apartment, the best choice is olive green, bottle green, emerald green or pea green. However, the shade of “hospital green”, used in operating rooms, might have an unpleasant effect. In some individuals, it could cause mental discomfort.

Thus, the colour green is a perfect choice for the interior, it just relies on good combining with other pieces of furniture. We wish you luck in combining, in case the green is going to be the colour of your choice 😉
