6 Rooms Chase Away Winter Blues with Nature's Colors and Green Rugs

Posted by Kate Watson on Nov 28, 2013 8:50:00 PM

With the approach of winter days are shortening and we are getting less exposure to the sun's healing rays. If you have been feeling a bit blue or moody, it is not just your imagination. Doctor's have a name for this physiologial effect, they call it "seasonal affective disorder" or SAD. As an antidote the Brooklyn Botanical Garden is offering nature walks called Chase Away the Winter Blues guided by a BBG veteran who also happens to be a licensed psychotherapist. "Walking the Garden grounds counteracts some of the overindulgence of the holiday season while keeping the blues at bay" advises the BBG. Decorating our homes with nature's colors is another way to invite the beauty and healing effects of nature's colors into our lives. We know that the color green has a cool, earthy feel, like grass under the feet or trees stirring in the breeze. Adding a green rug to any room can help infuse the space with a feeling that is vibrant and alive. The six rooms below all use green rugs to create a vibe that is modern but overwhelmingly fresh and natural.
