As summer is fast fading away, and can I say it has been a crazy summer. Hot weather, fun in the sun, being one with nature. As I start to put away my clean crisp summer clothing filled with tons of color…one color that I know I can wear in fall, winter, spring and summer and that is green, all shades !. At work I have concept board that I do try to update as often as I can, this concept board I created was Kelly Green. All fabrics are from #kravet, #gastonydaniela and #benjaminmoore paint. I added some prints with navy blue which by the way I think is the hottest color for fall, cobalt blue. But that will be another entry soon I promise! The color green is everywhere, nature- plants, trees, grass…to be it is outside living. We have green paint, jewelry, pillows, art work, shoes, purses, interiors, carpet, hair, nailpolish, clothing and even cars. My bestie who I went to FIDM with Cassie sent me this photo and thought of me..very appropriate to post this in this blog.. (photo credit- Cassie) you can paint your front door to give your space a personal touch. seen below.
The color of the year 2013 was emerald green, does everyone remember when fashion and interior created spaces in emerald green, I do believe that is when Oz came out Emerald City..follow that yellow brick road to get back to Kansas. Well even thought it is 2015 getting ready for 2016…the color green is still strong! There may be different shades of green but it is all part of the color green. ( all images are from google image)
This has to be one of my favorite fabrics from Jonathan Adler for Kravet…It is so fresh, sophisticated, and it screams preppy! To complete the green inspirited interiors I would use Benjamin Moore Paint – Clover Green
When designing a interior that has some sort of green in it just remember what the color green does to a room, there is a whole color meaning of green, posted below:
Green is the color of nature. It symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility. Green has strong emotional correspondence with safety. Dark green is also commonly associated with money.
Green has great healing power. It is the most restful color for the human eye; it can improve vision. Green suggests stability and endurance. Sometimes green denotes lack of experience; for example, a ‘greenhorn’ is a novice. In heraldry, green indicates growth and hope. Green, as opposed to red, means safety; it is the color of free passage in road traffic.
Use green to indicate safety when advertising drugs and medical products. Green is directly related to nature, so you can use it to promote ‘green’ products. Dull, darker green is commonly associated with money, the financial world, banking, and Wall Street.
Dark green is associated with ambition, greed, and jealousy.
Yellow-green can indicate sickness, cowardice, discord, and jealousy.
Aqua is associated with emotional healing and protection.
Olive green is the traditional color of peace.
