They say the color green is the perfect color for anything and everything. It’s a color often used by nature buffs and this means it can suit pretty much any space or decor. Outdoor homes are no exceptions. So if you want to create a relaxing, refreshing and fresh décor for your home for a great start towards spring cleaning, here are some ideas that could help.
White plays a simple role. In the case of a white décor it usually means that there’s not a lot of color involved. As for the type of colors that are ok n go with white, you can paint the walls and ceiling white and maybe even some accent pieces, maybe even colorful accessories, etc.
If you like simple and warm colors then maybe you’d like to add a touch of green to your décor. Lighter tones of green are better for summer days. Get a shade of green that’s very pale in colour and then use it as a background for red furniture.
If black is not really your colour then go to white. It’s the perfect background to combine the two colors and the effect will be amazing. And since we’re talking about light green, maybe you should add a pale yellow. It will look great on a black background.
If you want to add an artistic touch to your home then maybe you should consider painting the walls green. A dark shade of green will make your walls look dark and gloomy. The walls will also have a dramatic look and you can also use silver leaf and metal accents for the chairs to create a nice contrast.
If you want to add some plants to your bathroom or your kitchen then it would be helpful to choose one that’s slender and small in order to fit under the sink. It would also be safe enough to place it between the sink and the counter.
Black is a very beautiful and versatile color and it’s also timeless and classical. It would make a great secondary color against a neutral background, like white, grey, brown, black and so on. A black-framed black-stemmed plant would also look great in the bathroom or the kitchen.
Use green in combination with bright colors, pastels and muted shades of brown. Orange-tempered glass vases and planters are perfect if you want to add a little bit of energy and freshness to a décor.
The mood can dictate where you use different vibrant colors. For example, if you want to use green as your main color then choose a house with a rich shade of green like ochre or dark green. Stay away from the bold and bright colors at night and let the mood dictate the ambiance.
If, on the other hand, you want to use green as an accent color and one of the walls needs to be white, then you should pick a room with a simple but vibrant and white décor. It’s a room that would look blooming with natural light as well as a comfortable and inviting room.
The green color. It’s common to see green painted walls as a way to connect with nature and it’s also a nice way of creating a connection with the outdoors. Green walls would add freshness to an otherwise cold and austere décor.
Hues of green that are similar to green are also popular and they can create a harmonious setting without contrasting with the beige or gray features.
An idea would be to start with a color that you like in the room and to then choose soothing shades of green such as sage green or emerald. It would help to also use natural colors in the room, like wood, stone or natural carpet.
Everything can look natural when you use natural colors. For example, a penny brown sofa can be very alluring and a part of the room décor without looking bland and boring.
A penny yellow pair of chairs could look very beautiful in a living room with dark floors and some wooden furniture. Yellow is a bright and cheerful color and it looks great combined with gray and brown.
To create a more sophisticated look, you can paint the walls green and then add a few more powerful colors as well such as burgundy, mustard, silver and maybe even gold.
A penny green front door can look beautiful in a vintage house. It would give it character and it’s also a great way of making the house feel inviting.
