Spring is almost here, and all the plants and wildlife that were dormant over the winter are slowly coming back to life. Mirror Mother Nature’s lush awakening with deep, hunter-green-hued decor throughout your home. Vases, pillows, candles and other fun accessories will make you feel new, too, or, paint an accent wall in a shade of bold emerald to breathe new life into your interior space.

There is something timeless about this color. Its deep saturated color pairs well with gold accents or creamy white. Secret Garden makes for a regal, rich dining room or perhaps on a front door and shutters on the outside with beige or taupey siding. This color will never go out of style.

Hunter Green is back! We like to use Benjamin Moore’s Forest Green 2047-10, such a rich color from nature, yet with dramatic sophistication. It is great in a traditional office or library. For a more transitional look, pair it with Benjamin Moore’s Tranquility AF-490 with accents of pewter and white.

Green is a color that reminds us of Spring because of its roots in nature.  Green is also supremely versatile. The bolder shades of green can add an untamed elegance. Here’s to going green.

Our favorite is Salamander by Benjamin Moore. It has a pinch of blue. We could totally see the color on kitchen cabinets!
