Decorating with Color

Green is relatively easy to work with as it blends well with most any shade. Think about natural landscapes where flowers spanning every color of the rainbow rest upon green stems and forest foliage soothes the eye. Choose a green with a tinge of blue in it for a relaxing palette that readily mingles with lively tones such as coral and poppy. Yellow-green adds warmth and vitality, perking up any design, but take caution as a dab goes a long way. You can combine any verdant tint with white for a crisp, clean, and timeless effect.
