The biggest key to using the color greenery is to not overuse it. While it's a beautiful color, it needs to be handled delicately and by having to live you can overpower any one room. So, we will show you how to best balance and how using complementary colors, and how you can incorporate it as more of an accent color to really help make any room pop.

The first way that you can incorporate this beautiful green collar is by using it in a piece of furniture. Whether this is buying a green couch, a sofa chair, or wooden coffee table you can give your living room an excellent pop of color. Further compliment it with a geometric rug or dark walls, with some live green plants, and you’ll have a living room that’s the envy of the neighborhood.

One way you can incorporate the feeling of greenery, without actually using the bold color, is by using wallpaper that's just a few shades lighter. This will bring in a softer green, that still looks striking, but gives the room a softer look. As opposed to the bold look you’d get from using the full greenery shade. You can complement this look with off white wood furniture, natural wood furniture, and another solid complementary color such as black.

A third way you can use greenery in your home is by adding it into your kitchen. More specifically, adding in green stools to give your kitchen a pop of color, without it being overwhelming. An awesome kitchen combination could be white faux stone panels on the counter faces and walls, with your green stools, and stainless steel appliances. White faux stone panels add in texture, but give a striking bright backdrop for the beautiful and bold greenery.

The fourth idea of incorporating greenery is by using it in your bedroom as an accent. For example, you can tie in greenery by putting up long greenery colored curtains. If you keep the rest of your room neutral colors, these curtains can provide an excellent vocal point, which helps to draw in more light into your room. Making it look not only bigger and brighter, but that pop of color with the green gives it an amazing wow factor.

You can always use greenery in a home office. Now, with a home office you can have a little bit more fun with the color. For instance, instead of using it as an accent, why not paint an entire wall with this beautiful green? It can give the room a fun cheery look that will help put you in a good mood as you go about your workday. Just make sure that you compliment this wall with very neutral colors, such as white, so the color doesn’t overwhelm you.

Finally, use greenery in your bathroom. This is also a place where you can have fun with this color. For instance, incorporate greenery into your bathroom by doing a backsplash of green tile. This will brighten up the space, as well as give it a sophisticated wow factor. Again, just make sure you compliment it with a lot of white and neutrals.

No matter how you decide to incorporate greenery into your home, we just know that if you do, you won’t be disappointed. It’s a beautiful color that is sure to add flair and fun no matter what avenue you decide to take. Happy decorating!
