Green is a natural choice for home decorating. Found in the world’s forests, meadows and gardens, it brings a feeling of the outdoors to the inside of your home.

For home decorating, you have so many choices in the green family, from rich and lush, and calm and serene, to bold and brilliant. Because green comes in so many shades, it’s a very flexible design color.

Just think of all the beautiful natural names for green hues: sage, lime, spring, forest, emerald, mint, fern, grass, avocado, jade, apple, celery and pistachio.
