Throughout human evolution green plants and trees have provided us food, medicine, shelter and beauty- all essential for survival and happiness. We unconsciously associate the color green with soothing, nurturing and energizing qualities. It is no wonder that bringing the color green inside brings the pleasure of beauty and makes a room feel both restful and energizing. As in nature green is often used on the larger surfaces that surround us, such as green walls and green rugs.
If you think about it, in nature green goes with an infinite range of colors and shades found in flowers, tree bark, rocks and the sky. So green is nature's neutral color! Green will work as a great neutral inside the home-provided you learn from nature what colors to accent it with. Keep in mind that lighting inside the home will determine how a color or a combination of colors will look. So always examine colors of rugs and fabrics in the room where they are going to be used. Check the colors during day light and also in evening light.
