Remembering Green… the Color, That Is

From on December 17, 2008 in Green Remodeling

Green WednesdayGreen is now synonymous with environmental awareness, but let’s not forget, it’s a great color, too. Fellow CalFinder blogger Anna mentioned once that whenever you pass the occasional, eye-popping fluorescent green house, you can’t help wondering what the homeowner was thinking. Fluorescent green exterior paint aside, green can be a modern, quirky, eclectic, even earthy accent or focal point. That’s why this Green Wednesday post is dedicated to ideas on going green, literally.

Don’t these green chairs look charming against an all-white kitchen? Chrome plated and made of woven paper rattan, they’ve got a natural feel and contemporary appeal.

I like the way this shade doesn’t try to be inconspicuous. It’s not a forest green or a light mint cop-out. Here’s how it looks in the kitchen. It’s got some energy to it. I can imagine this color in a living room, too.
