When it comes to home design, one of this year’s trends is the color green. Known for its calming effect and versatility, it’s no wonder that designers are embracing shades of green. And did you know the color green may even help boost your mood and improve your memory? Who knew?

This month, we are doing a double take on applying the color green to your home. First, we will explore the beautiful ways you can incorporate a pop of green into your home by way of rugs, furniture, window treatments, and so much more. Then, we will share some of the health benefits of using green—which includes plants—and how this color can improve your life and well-being.

A touch of nature

There’s just something about nature that lets you know it’s a good thing. Look around you and you’ll be surprised to see how this wonderful hue blends beautifully anywhere it springs up. Whether you’re looking to add a pop of green to one of your favorite rooms or create a serene area to call your own, green is the perfect backdrop that is not only visually pleasing, but brings out the “happy” in any room.

Inspiring ways to decorate with green


The best inspiration on how to use the color green may be right outside your window. If you love a lush, green lawn, then a beautiful green carpet or area rug may be just what you’re looking for. Or perhaps you have a favorite tree (or hedges) that surround your home. In this case, green window treatments will set the tone. And did someone mention pillows? Throw pillows in prints, designs, solids, and textures are an easy go-to when it comes to visual accents. Whatever you choose, bringing a touch of nature into your home is a soothing way to brighten your day.
