5 Favorite Ways to Use Green in Your Home

Whether green is your favorite color or not, it’s an integral part of our lives. I’ve written several articles about using green as the main focus. I thought it would be nice to share these favorite ways to use the color green.

Green is always a great color to use in your home decor. It’s natural, organic, and adds a fresh pop of color. When you think of green, you may think of the outdoors. Or you may think of vegetables and plants.

As I’ll show you, green can also be a fun color for sweets and drinks.

5 Favorite Ways to Use Green in Your Home

Let’s start with one of my favorite ways to use green ~ in our home decor.

Natural Feel in Your Home

Green is the ultimate natural and organic home decor color. It brings our spaces to life and can energize us.

Here’s how I shared ideas for green in your home decor. I focused on the mantel and tables and centerpieces.

Plants in Your Home Decor

Plants are the ultimate “green”. Using plants in our homes not only bring in color. Plants are the most organic items to bring in:

  • texture
  • patterns
  • shape
  • movement
  • focal points

Why do we love to use plants?

  • different colors
  • different sizes
  • variety of textures
  • relatively inexpensive
  • allows us to use many different containers
  • can sit on the floor, on a table, a mantel or countertop
  • growing plants is good for the soul

Green in a Tablescape

Green is a perfect color for a tablescape, not just at Christmas. I have used green for spring tablescapes, Easter and even winter tablescapes.

I love using green in all different patterns, from checks to polka~dots and stripes to solids. The color palette runs the gamut from fresh and crisp to soft and muted.

This springtime green tablescape hopefully will inspire your own.
