|Using Green Accessories in Decorating source|
I found some things I already knew about why green is popular (color of nature, sooothing, etc.) but found this interesting summary of why green is such a great color - in general.
How great is that! I have several rooms in my home that are predominantly green and have always wanted a green and white kitchen. Here are some great green decorating images ending with a composite of green chairs in my current Wydeven Designs inventory - available on eBay, Etsy or One Kings Lane. Enjoy!
Source - My Pinterest BoardGreen is the color of envy, luck, inexperience and, until recently (in the U.S. at least), money. It is also the color of life, health, nature, balance, and harmony - and the representative of the global movement to protect our environment.Green is the easiest color on the eye and is calming and refreshing. People waiting to appear on TV talk shows sit in a "green room" because the color is relaxing. In the Middle Ages, brides wore green to symbolize fertility. Green is considered a healing color and has multiple health benefits. Those working in a green (as in color, although the ecological meaning is also true) environment experience fewer health problems than those in non-green surroundings. Green is also said to bring peace of mind and to balance circulation and breathing.Researchers have also found that green can even improve reading ability! (Some students may find that laying a transparent green film over a page can increase reading ability and skill.)The human eye sees more shades of green than any other color. (No wonder it is so popular in home decorating palettes!) From bright lime to subtle sage there is a shade of green to suit every taste and a tasteful way to add your favorite green hues to your home. source
