When it comes to choosing colors for our homes, we don't just pick our favorites—we lean toward shades that are easy on the eyes, can further create an open and welcoming feel, and those that match well with the furniture and accessories that we already have.

If you've always loved nature and would like to create a relaxing ambiance at home, you may want to give hints of apple green a try. It can work well as an accent hue or as the main color of your haven when matched with white or wooden pieces. To inspire you to work on your space, here are five photos you can use as references:

1. Pair it with black pieces for a sophisticated feel.

Tired with the look of your T&B? Shake things up a bit by painting your walls a light shade of apple green. Complete the space by adding white moldings and fixtures, green towels, and black accessories. Create a balanced look by choosing a mirror, wall lamps, and wall accents with black borders and frames. This combo can give your bathroom a classic meets vintage feel.

2. Achieve the bedroom of your dreams.

Going all-white in the bedroom can be beneficial for a lot of reasons—it can set the mood for a good slumber and would make you feel calm and at ease in an instant. Keep it from being boring and plain by dressing up the bed with apple green sheets and pillow covers. Choose pieces with white details and prints to tie the look together.

For similar items, you may want to check out The Olive Tree Corporation for linens and home accessories.

3. Use it as accent color in a tropical-inspired room.

In most tropical-inspired nooks and havens, it's common to see hints of blue, white, and brown mixed up to create a laid-back feel. Make it more interesting by throwing in pieces with shades of apple green as accent color. Choose side tables in the said shade or even soft furnishings and wall art—make it stand out by choosing items in a brighter tint (similar to the shade of the side table seen in photo).

4. Use it for your walls for a country feel.

Many of us easily fall in love with the country style because of its cozy appeal and laid-back ambiance. Aside from choosing neutrals and warm shades, you can achieve a country-inspired bedroom by painting your wall a light shade of green then choosing hints of blue as accent color. Choose fluffy pillows and crisp white sheets to complete your bed. Don't forget to add wooden seating pieces and side tables to ace the overall look.

5. Achieve an airy and bright home office.

We all know that to be able to get some work done, we need a clutter-free space where we can focus and feel inspired. If you only have a corner at home that functions as your work area, paint the wall green and install white open shelves. Complete the look with a comfy white chair, a built-in desk, and a mini cabinet where you can keep some of your belongings. Use the shelves to display books and even photos. Having a green wall helps—not only in creating an open space, it's also a welcome sight when you need to give your eyes a refreshing break.
