Decorating With Green
Spruce up a room by incorporating a shot of fresh, natural color.
How to Add a Little Green
Perk up a wallflower room with strategic hits of this vibrant color.
- Start with the floor. If you want one big burst of green, choose a rug. It is usually less expensive than other sizable furnishings and can be easily moved from room to room when you’re looking to shake things up. Opt for a style with multiple shades of green so it will better coordinate with the rest of your stuff.
- Bring on the accessories. Just a few well-chosen pieces will give you a green fix. And you can add and subtract items depending on how much green you want. Real Simple placed a green runner on the console, set the table with olive-colored dishes, and framed scraps of green-patterned wallpaper.
- Don’t forget the blossoms. Consider green (or greenish) flowers. Forsythia branches, which bloom yellow before sprouting bright green leaves, look great on the console. The Billy buttons, arranged in a light green vase on the table, can last up to two weeks. Also try Lenten roses, which have soft green flowers and foliage.
