Every spring, nature reminds us why we love the color green. Representing life, hope and prosperity, green is the go-to color for decorators who want a room that’s refreshing, relaxing and let’s face it, downright gorgeous. From good-old grass green to soothing celery, this month’s color story features four completely different spaces that prove greens are good for you.
Harmonious and interesting, split- complementary colors will give your room just enough contrast. To find the split complement of green, look to the left and right of its complement, red. In the case of green, the split- complementary scheme would include purple-red and orange-red.
Nature isn't afraid of color and this beautiful bedroom proves that you shouldn't be either! In this split-complementary scheme, green is introduced to purple-red and orange-red for a look that's stylish and contemporary, yet casual and totally approachable.
If you love this look, start by painting your walls a refreshing grass green. This hue is so in right now and it's going to instantly give your room a nature-inspired feel. You can continue this theme with a bold, floral painting in purple-red hues and a floral-patterned rug that brings in your third accent color, orange-red. Then, continue to introduce pops of purple-red and orange-red in your bedding to complete your look.
Even your furniture can work with your theme if you go with a set that also draws inspiration from nature, like this set that mimics the shape and color of bamboo. The light blonde wood tone also lends itself well to the room's orange-red hues.
The great thing about a split-complementary scheme like this is that it allows you to play with color just like nature to create a room that's anything but ordinary!
