Green. That glorious, invigorating color that symbolizes nature and the natural world. A color known to represent tranquility, good luck, health and even jealousy, it is a splendid color incorporated into our interior worlds. Of course, the mention of the word “jealousy” harkens the infamous quote that is forever entwined with the color green: “Green with envy”. Perhaps the association with the color of money is another culprit between this link of ‘envy’. Of interest, it is even said that the color green was once the preferred color choice for wedding gowns in the 15th century. Who knew? Perhaps it is not surprising, as “Emerald Green” is a classic, historic color that has represented royalty through the archives of history. A rich history with a hue, for certain. This brilliant color, with a wide range of brilliant and subdued hues, has a history of its own in being used in decorating for the calming effect it is said to furnish. Believed to relieve stress, it is commonly associated with nature itself. The season of Spring itself, perhaps. Oh, the multitude of coverings this magnificent color coats itself upon. The color of emeralds, jade and growing grass. The green blades of a delicate fern. Surely the color that denotes well being, balance and harmony overpowers its association with envy. The energy that green provides us within our interiors is like nature itself. The energy of change, growth and continual transformation in the world around us. A “Green Room”. Relaxation, indeed…
Consider the embellishment within your interiors with the deep or bright hues of green. A beautiful backdrop of the color from the natural world brought inside our interior worlds. A stunning color that will refresh and enliven our interiors. A restful yet energetic combination of style, for certain.
“Green, which is nature’s colour, is restful, soothing, cheerful, and health-giving” – Paul Brunton
“Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises” – Pedro Calderon de la Barca
