Green, from soft sage and light mint to rich forest and deep evergreen, is a go-to hue for packing a sophisticated, yet lively punch of color into our spaces. These four projects turned up the visual volume with both creative and practical ways to go green.
Near the entry, in a powder bath, or on the ceiling, a dark green accent wall like this one by Lenox House Design delivers an excellent first impression. The wall covering, which is a hunter green selection with a lizard skin texture, adds personality and panache to the Chanhassen family home. lenoxhousedesign.com
Delicate wallpapers and coverings add gentle flair and sophisticated style to large and small spaces alike. Here, Randolph Interior Design uses a light-green, nature-inspired selection (look closely to see peacocks, birds, florals, and trees) to pull serenity and softness into an Edina bedroom suite. randolphid.com
Furnishings, from throw pillows and accent chairs to office credenzas and entryway buffets (like in the foyer of the Martha O’Hara Interiors and John Kraemer & Sons traditional lake home featured at the top of the article), are the perfect way to toss in pops of color without permanent commitment. oharainteriors.com, jkandsons.com
Incorporating a rich, emerald-green shade into your kitchen’s cabinetry, floor tile, or backsplash is a fool-proof way to create a classic space that transcends both time and trend. Quality Cut Design | Remodel chose not only the perfect cabinetry color, but also the perfect geometric-shaped tile and high-gloss finishes for this 1957 ranch-style kitchen remodel.
