Green: From Apple to Willow
With the growing complexity and sophistication of the palette offered by most paint companies, “green” today refers to an extremely wide spectrum of hues. To visualize the options, think of the many colors that appear in a garden or grove of trees: apple, asparagus, celery, fern, honeydew, lime, mint, olive and willow may come to mind.
Green and Blue Side By Side
Because various greens and blues work so well together, virtually any combination from these extended color families can be used to create a visually pleasant interior. Some of the ways to do that include using different blues or greens on the walls and trim, painting an accent wall in a slightly different color from the others, or painting one or more items of furniture in a contrasting or complementary green or blue.
