Colour Theory – Green

Want to know more about the colours that you love and how they influence not only your home but also how you feel. How they effect your mood, feelings and emotions?

Colours can make us feel energised or relaxed, they can make us feel sad and happy….. even hungry!

Understanding how colours can effect us make designing and decorating our homes a much simpler process and reduces the fear of getting it wrong.

So, if you want to know a little more about colour theory and psychology then this new blog series is for you.

I’m starting with green, for a couple of reasons. I’m currently working on some green projects and you guys seem to love this colour….. a lot. And as we move into Spring it seems the perfect colour to start with, as green symbolises nature and growth.

Green promotes balance and harmony, supports growth and renewal, and offers a restful and soothing atmosphere.

You can manipulate the tone of the room by using a darker or lighter shade and it’s the perfect choice for soothing bedrooms and restful living rooms alike. I’ve chosen green accents for my kitchen, linking it further with nature and the great outdoors.

And if you’re looking for some inspiration to introduce green into your home, then look no further. There’s plenty of inspiration below, for those those who want green as the primary colour and those who may just want a hint of green.
