Colour Psychology - Green

These last few days I have spent alot of time in my garden trying to tame the jungle and create a beautiful space to enjoy al fresco dinng with a chilled glass of white and weekend breakfasts in the sunshine, this has inspired me to write about green for this months colour psychology series.

The colour of nature, there is no doubt that green is a calming colour that is very pleasing to your senses. The natural greens, from forest to lime, are seen as tranquil and refreshing, with a natural balance of cool and warm undertones.

Green is considered the color of peace, harmony and support, it helps to relax you mentally as well as physically, soothing you and your thoughts.

I particularly love green used with grey or black. The darker colours provide depth to the scheme and the end result is a feeling of luxury and sophistication. But if you want to follow nature, stay with natural shades.

I hope you have enjoyed this months post and you were able to enjoy the great outdoors this weekend.
