Add a Touch of Nature with Lush Greens!

You can include greens in your home to make you feel close to nature. It adds freshness to an interior design and leaves a positive impact on your mood.

“It’s conjectured that we have such a positive response to green because eons ago, when we were around lots of green plants, it meant that life was generally good.” -Sally Augustin, PhD, environmental psychologist 

You can either add indoor plants, green wall décor, green curtains, bedding, or simply add a green light effect. If taking the green to the walls, take in account the natural light before selecting your green color. If the lighting is limited have your green be a few shades lighter, it will appear darker in this light. Try using Breezeway from Behr  for a lighter look and have fun with Guacamole from Glidden for a bolder look.
