Interior design with green tones
Fascinating world of colours: green
Green is a colour with which we are especially familiar and conversant: not least because green is the colour of nature and reminds us of meadows and forests. So it is no wonder that green tones are grounding, harmonising and bringing us into balance. As nature always implies growth and vitality, green is a colour that we combine with freshness, naturalness, hope and harmony. Thanks to all these positive properties, green in its numerous shades is also popular in Interior Design projects and, when used correctly, brings a natural familiarity with it.
Interior design with harmonious shades of green
As green is not one of the primary colours, but is mixed from yellow and blue, the yellow and blue components define how the green appears. A warm, juicy green has a high percentage of yellow, while a less saturated, cool green has a higher proportion of blue. Combined with shades of blue, the colour green has a room-expanding and calming effect. In contrast with red, the colour tone has a stimulating effect. The complementary contrast between red and green can quickly cause unrest in the interior and should therefore be subdued and used with care. Green is also ideally suited as a wall paint, because it doesn't matter whether light or dark green, it never constricts. With its regenerating effect, green supports concentration in the office and spreads a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere in the living room. Depending on the furnishings, a delicate mint green or warm, earthy and natural dark green tones can enhance a kitchen.
