The color green has always been a favorite of mine. I don't know why. Maybe it announces the return of warm weather and spring. Green is calming and serene.
Green pairs well with many colors but especially nicely with whites and neutrals. This color is a fresh counterpoint to taupes and brings a natural, down to earth feel to metallics. I even like the look of dark bronze accents or burnished browns if it is lightened by a sweet, minty green. Spa like, green puts me in a relaxed mood.
One of my favorite lamps is my new Cliveden Lamp in Green. Picture two flanking this soft, neutral sofa below. A supremely serene room, it is lovely as it stands now. But a pop of pattern in a lichen like color would not be a bad thing. A touch of green adds just the right amount of energy to rooms that are intended to calm and relax. Mint, grass, lime and chartreuse are favorite accents of mine.
