With St. Patrick’s day coming up this weekend, everyone is “seeing green.” However, we’ve been seeing green in a little bit of a different way. Maybe we were inspired by some of the rich & deep greens on the Benjamin Moore color trends palette for 2019 but we noticed that a lot of our saved Instagram posts as well as pins to our general ‘Design Inspiration’ board on our Pinterest were trending particularly in this color direction.
Here’s a few screen shots from what our “saved” pages & “recent pins” look like currently–it’s always fun to look back and see what common element continues to show up over any certain period of time!
I love the use of dark hunter greens on kitchen cabinetry, bathroom vanities, furniture, walls, and tile. In terms of color theory/meanings and color psychology, green is a “down to earth color that represents new beginnings and growth.” The use of green in design also provides calming, balancing, and harmonizing effects as it promotes a connection to nature and the natural world. Green in design (especially some of these dark and moody tones that we’ve been seeing in our own inspiration) is beautiful because it is not too overstimulating but still adds a pop of color and interest. Here’s a closer look at some of our favorite spaces that have us green with envy!
Enjoy St. Patrick’s Day weekend with some fresh green inspiration for your home!
