Green is the colour above all others that we associate with nature. It’s intrinsically linked to blades of grass, to pastures and landscapes, to leaves and lawns, to fresh fruit and leafy vegetables. There are two sides to this connotation. Perhaps because nature ‘does’ green so well, we’re unsure about how to emulate it in our own homes. We think that it belongs to the outside world and that we wouldn’t be able to do it justice. The other way to think about it is that by keeping green the other side of the threshold, we’re not making the most of it. It’s a wasted opportunity. Colour is such a powerful tool. It can help to shake off the stress of a bad day and encourage us to let go, to unwind. Green in the home does what it does best – spell out calmness, vitality, patience and escapism.
