Contrary to popular belief, green isn’t difficult to incorporate into your home. In fact, it’s a great accent color that works well with both classic and contemporary backgrounds—not only that, it gives any space a refreshing and calming vibe that is impossible to beat. To inspire you to play with shades of jade a la Mother Nature, here are some photo pegs worth saving: 

This minimalist-inspired kitchen and breakfast nook combo is brightened up by a strong pop of green. The color of abundance is also said to stimulate energy and conversation which makes it a great choice for a dining spot.

Break up an earthy palette with a shade of green that mimics tree leaves. Using various shades of neutrals in a room creates a warm and inviting space that will make guests feel right at home. 

If you have a lot of ground to cover, feel free to use shades of olive in different tones for an irresistible sea of green. Create a lush, layered look by adding indoor plants as part of your display, too.

Green makes a great statement color for the focal points in your living area. Showcase your favorite art pieces against a deep, moss-colored wall to make the pieces stand out. 

Complement mint green walls with a dark, emerald sofa—this will make the room feel cool, airy, and a perfect area for naps even during hot summer days.
