GOING GREEN FOR ST PATTYS DAY – HOW TO ADD GREEN INTO YOUR HOME
St. Patty’s Day is around the corner y’all – which means one thing – we’re going green! Whether it’s the color of our walls, our furniture, or even our clothes – green is going to be popping up this week, but being one of our go-to colors at MegMade, we promise it’s here to stay. Green is just one of those colors that can be so versatile with its shades. It’s cool-toned amazingness, offsets deep colors and light and bright colors perfectly, while the warmer-toned greens bring that earthy, naturalist vibe to the room. We love green y’all, and today we’re going to show you the best ways to add it into your home!
First things first – paint is our go-to when adding green! It’s the perfect color to bring an older piece of furniture back to life, and because of it’s natural elements, it fits almost perfectly in any space. One thing I love about some green furniture paint is that it never looks bad when finished. Of course, you may think green is a bold choice and may be hesitant at first – but y’all let me tell you – it’s ALWAYS a good choice. You can go in with a deeper forest green, or with a bright kelly green, or with a lighter moodier shade like sage – and I promise it will all look amazing!
Whether we go in with some paint, or some AMAZING wallpaper – green is the best accent to add to any wall space, in my opinion. Being that green is so versatile, it can effortlessly offset any color – no matter how bold! Whether you want to stay simple and go in with a green accent wall with just one shade, or go in with some leafy or floral amazingness, and pair it with some bold colors in and of itself – you can’t go wrong either way!
Sometimes the best way to add green into the room is by just simply adding it into the upholstery! What’s so great about fabric is all the texture it can bring. In the first picture, the green complements the soft airy feeling of the upholstery, while the leather green chair gives a very earthy, heavier feeling, which fits perfectly to ground the space around it! With fabric, you play with the weight, and being that green is a generally bright, uplifting color, it’s the best color to add to heavier fabrics, and also to lighter.
