Green Accents Inspiration

Green is having its moment in 2020. Not only is it prevalent in the biophilic design trend, but green accents are also on the list of the top design trends this year. You can add green accents through paint, pillows, or plants! In addition to green accessories, you can add in green furniture pieces. There are many ways to add a little more green to your home.

Green is an easy color to work with because it’s pleasant to the eyes. It combines beautifully with other natural hues. The color can make you feel more connected to nature and creates a relaxing and comfortable space. Green embodies hope, renewal, and growth. 

Green is also a very versatile color. With many different shades of green, you can achieve many different vibes. For a warm, fall feel, use darker shades like olive. For a look that’s playful and energetic, use bright greens. Opt for emerald if you are trying to achieve a look that is bold and striking.
