7 Ways to Pull Green in a Space | Home Show Addition

The color green is thought to bring balance and youthfulness in interior design.  It’s depth of ‘hue’ is displayed from forest green-to-jade with thousands of shades to choose from – which explains why it’s often chosen as a ‘pop’ accent color.

Here’s a sampling of our use of this marvelous color from the 2015 IDEA & Inspiration House.

Faux Planters

AccentWall500The subtle addition of these planters gives this neutral accent wall a focal point.

CustomIsland500A touch of green, with varying textures, is all it takes for color to be added to this custom built island.

Tip:  The faux planters can be found at your local craft store.

Throw Pillows & Area Rugs

CouchPillows500Accent color can also come in twos. In this setting the sunny yellow and lime green adds fun and a casual feel to the space.

Color with Fruit & Napkins

KitchenTable500In this neutral palette, the fruit and napkins bring a bit of personality to this entire room.

Color with Fruit, Towels and Plants

BookShelf500The fruit, towels and faux planters allow the eye to move throughout the bookshelf.

Stone Coloring

Countertop500Consider bringing in a striking color through counter-tops.  Just enough color to not overdo, however, adds a tremendous amount of interest to the space.  Counter-top > Fantasy Soapstone
