Hello May! I find myself spending a lot of time at the home improvement store, pinning flowers, and starting a garden. And Spring encourages me to spread green around the home. But green can be intimidating: it is bold, organic, and eye catching. So how can you integrate it into your space? Here are 5 ideas for spreading cheerful green throughout your home!
1. Add a plant!
Add a plant (or three) to the room for instant warmth and added texture.
2. Create accessories
From mirrors to wall decals, door stops to pillows accessories are an easy and affordable way to add color to the room. Perfect for apartments and rental homes.
3. Paint the Walls
Looking for a bold look? Paint those walls! If you are nervous about going too bold, add white to the paint to tone it down or paint the upper half of the wall and leave the lower half white.
Another really fun way to integrate green in your home is adding painted furniture. This could be a really fun DIY project with kids: bed frames, lamp stands, dressers, even couches. Look for chippy, affordable furniture with good lines at the thrift store. They will be perfect for painting!
5. Wall Art
For a subtle green look try oversized maps and chalkboards.
