“I know it’s not yet summer. But you know, as much as I love snow and different snow activities, I prefer laying at the beach and doing nothing. Oh well, I lied. Does sipping cocktail counts? I remember my travels to exotic places and all I need right now at my place is some greenery and freshness. I love how wind tousles my hair, and how I feel when I walk down the palm road. I also love the shadows palms creates. I want to remodel my interior to have some greenery without spending thousands and without throwing my furniture away. How could I do this?”
-A Desperate client.
Green colour is the colour of nature – relaxing, fresh and tranquil. In interior design it is restful on the eye, green was traditionally used in home libraries or study rooms. What’s interesting, before the 18th Century only muted greens were popular because of the very expensive costs of bright greens.
Our favourite Emerald colour was prefered by Emperor Napoleon, his rooms were combined with emerald, gold and white.
Back to XXIst Century, I’ve picked some fresh green products to spruce up your living space. You can refresh your home without destroying everything with the help of these little objects.
