~ Nostalgic and retro, dark green seems perfectly suited for a bedroom, a place that requires peacefulness and solace. ~
My interior design preferences typically gravitate toward the discreet and minimal. However, once in a while I come across a room in a bold color that I cannot take my eyes off. This is what happened when I saw the image above. I was drawn to the coziness and the serenity of the space, attributes that seem to originate in the dark green primary color.
Generally associated with nature, hence with life, renewal and harmony, green is a positive color that has the potential to generate calm and equilibrium. Given its vegetal connotations, this tone fits nicely on the walls of an open porch or in a bathroom, but the kitchen and the living room are not exceptions as in these areas green tends to create a very chic and indulgent atmosphere.
In order to avoid creating an oppressive space, dark green can be paired with light materials and shades of white, gray and silver. Another helpful element for a dark green room is a mirror, or better yet, a couple of mirrors, which will add volume and confer light.
