Color Series: Adding Green to Your Bathroom

I bet you haven’t heard that green can be paired with anything. Green might seem like a bold, independent color, but if you think of how we see greens in nature, you’ll change your mind. If you’re not ready to paint your living room or bedroom green, try starting with an accent wall in one of your bathrooms instead! Also, consider green tiles, green accessories, or even green cabinets.

Green pairs especially well with wood. They combine to create a space reminiscent of the outdoors.

For an extra dramatic touch, try a “green wall.” The humidity of your showers will likely be enough to keep something like this thriving, but some installations involve a trickling water feature.
