I have always had a fondness for the colour green.  It’s soothing, offers a sense of fun, renewal, harmony, and is said to alleviate anxiety.

With green being all around us in nature, it’s an easy colour to live with and an ideal shade to use as a backdrop in a home. Green’s natural balance of cool and warm undertones helps us view it as being a traditional, trustworthy sort of colour. While the bright yellow gradient brings about the emotions that whimsical dreams are made of, as well as being hip and trendy.

Being a lover of green, it’s so hard to choose a favourite, but some of the tints from Plascon’s Inspirations Palette that get me excited are…

Start the green process from the outside in for a home that’s harmonious and has a calming effect on all who enter. It might leave the neighbours just a little green with envy.
