I believe my favorite thing about design is COLOR!  I love it!  I love the way certain bright colors make me feel!  I find it compelling to learn why we colors provoke certain emotions.  So, I’m going to do a series on Color Psychology.  I thought about a post, but that would be forever long and not as much fun!  And since I’m all about FUN, I’m doing a series!

Green

I’m beginning with green because it just seems to be my “go-to” right now!

So, what is the psychology of green?

Here are a few things that our brains think of when we think of the color green:

Fresh, calming, organic, loyal, gentle, aware,  earthy,  secure,  restful, luxurious, harmony, reassurance, new-beginnings, renewal.

This pic is a great example of green evoking a feeling of luxury AND harmony!  That green velvet ottoman is so plush and inviting and it creates such harmony in the room, tying the eclectic use of old and new into one fluid motion.

Here’s a great example of how green brings out the earthy AND organic side of an interior.  I also love the idea of painting an entrance to your home a bold color.  This gives your guests an idea of what’s to come!

Green in the bedroom makes for a calming and restful environment.  Perfect for a good night’s rest!

I love this mix of black and white with green!  It certainly feels fresh and clean to me.

Here are a few ways I’ve used green in my own home and in my design:

In my office, I’ve incorporated green by painting the cabinets Ben Moore Bunker Hill Green.  Also, in the trellis wallpaper and the greek key fabric that I used for the ottomans.  I LOVE the outcome here!  It makes me feel alert and happy and ready to design!

In the master I chose a chinoiserie silk wallpaper with a green background.  It is definitely calming and relaxing creating quite the sanctuary.

I really used green as the color that moves through out the entire home, to tie all of the rooms together and create harmony!  This is the window seat going up the stairs.

In the kitchen I used just a touch of green with a leaf pattern in the window treatment

Here are three of my favorite current fabrics that can be used together to create a fresh, organic and luxurious space.  You can see the common denominator in all three is green.

What do you think of green?  What emotions come to mind when you think of green?  I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Happy Connection Monday!
