The softening layer of the vibrant color and texture of “Moss”….
Oh, the depth and richness of color that moss provides! Lush green in natural form. A burst of sublime color when included as an natural element of decoration within the interior. Of interest, “Moss Green” is a color tone of green that is said to resemble moss. The first recorded use of “Moss Green” as a color name in English was in 1884. Certainly, a history of this hue’s appeal has continued onward. The appeal of moss and its rich color has not faded, but has remained a distinctively bold, yet soothing and timeless color. And of the actual moss that the color refers? A majestic and glorious addition to decorate our spaces while anticipating the arrival of the Spring and Summer Seasons or as a natural element that provides visual enjoyment and color throughout the year.

Botanically, mosses are non-vascular plants in the land plant division Bryophyta. A flowerless and rootless plant that provides a visual calming effect, these small (only a few centimeters tall) herbaceous (non-woody) plants absorb water and nutrients mainly through their leaves while “harvesting sunlight” and creating life through photosynthesis. Harvesting sunlight, indeed. Perhaps moss can become a visual reminder of the sunshine that will spill onto our surrounds with Spring’s arrival. These elements of nature, that require a shady, moist location to encourage growth, are elements that often attract our attention when found in nature. We can all imagine the coolness of the moss when found in its natural environment. The soft, carpet-like appeal of this natural and moist element of nature is visually tranquil and alluring. A tuft of velvet in texture, “Moss” is certainly to be appreciated out of its element…

Thoughts For The Arrival Of The Growing Season….

March has arrived. As the world around me remains white and snowflakes are still gently falling from the Wintry sky, I yearn for the color green and those natural elements that represent it. Spring will arrive, and the embellishments of green moss within the interior will serve as a visual reminder. In fact, “seasonless” reminders. And within my interior? Natural Arrangements of Green, of course. “Moss” arrangements. Sublime style, indeed.
